More to Give: Tapping the Talents of the Baby Boomer, Silent, and Greatest Generations

Source: AARP
This study looked at three generations:
  • ​Baby Boomers, those who were born during the spike in birth rates, includes those born between 1946 and 1964 (currently ages 44 to 62);
  • The Silent Generation, first referred to as such in a 1951 TIME Magazine article because of their place between comparatively revolutionary generations, includes those born between 1929 and 1945 (currently age 63 to 79);
  • The Greatest Generation, who served in or supported the country through World War II, includes those born between 1901 and 1929 (currently 80 and older).  The report discusses both the potential for and the barriers to civic engagement and volunteering among these generations.
