Civic Participation includes involvement in aspects of community life that extend beyond day-to-day activities. Retirement has created time for many older adults to become more involved in volunteering, but for others, continued work is important, especially for those with low and fixed incomes. Employment provides economic security and a sense of belonging and benefits employers who recognize the experience and commitment older employees bring to the workplace.

The Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan includes the goals, objectives, and strategies for the "Civic Participation and Employment" domain during the plan's implementation phase (2022–2025).
