New AARP Report on Civic Engagement among Elders

I just got an email from uber-connected Cynthia Gibson (you know – author of Citizens at the Center) about an AARP report that will be rolled out tomorrow as part of the Service Nation event. The report, titled More to Give: Tapping the Talents of the Baby Boomer, Silent and Greatest Generation, is authored by Robert Putnam, John Bridgeland and Harris Wofford.

It discusses the civic behaviors and attitudes of Americans as they transition from work to retirement.  The primary purpose of the report is “to spark a national dialogue and movement around the civic engagement of [the Baby Boomers, the Silent Generation, and the Greatest Generation]” and is based on a series of focus groups and a nationally representative survey that was conducted of Americans age 44-79. Download the AARP Report now.
