Youth Volunteering on the Rise
“The results of this survey indicate that youth volunteering appears to be a long-term and growing trend, rather than a short-term fad” says volunteer Lynne Harper. “This excites me and I believe that youth and family service is a movement which is here to stay.”
This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive® on behalf of The Volunteer Family between June 17, 2009 and June 24, 2009 among 1,425 8-18 year olds. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, parental education, and region were weighted where necessary. No estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated. A full methodology is available.
