ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the older adults for whom civic engagement is inaccessible in the U.S. It also focuses on improving institutional capacity as a way of making civic engagement more inclusive. The challenge in realizing this goal is to continue to recognize the civic potential of the older adults and to do so, the author suggests a creative program and policy proposals based on their potential contributions and that address their economic, social, cultural, and physical diversity. The author also noted that civic engagement or civic action includes behaviors in the realm of civic society that express the voluntary, collective spirit of the people.
