Age should not be considered as a discriminatory element to close access to education for gerontolescents and the elderly. Knowledge is part of human rights and people should be allowed to continue attending school throughout their lives. This study answers the question: What are the educational opportunities that gerontolescents have? It is a documentary research. The international and national framework that supports the elderly was analyzed; an analysis of the current context of educational opportunities in favor of gerontolescents in Mexico was also carried out; finally, a proposal for action that allows the inclusion of people of age in the educational field was conceived. Through education, older people maintain their physical and mental activity, feeling useful and part of society, maintaining visibility in family and society. They are active, productive people that must be incorporated into companies and schools through programs aimed at caring for the participation of gerontolescents in these spaces, in a dignifying environment.

Keywords : human rights; lifelong education; elderly; social visibility.
