UCAN understands the importance of young people volunteering in the community. Young people are increasingly seeking out opportunities to improve the world by volunteering their service to projects they deem to be important. Consider the following data:
• Out of 13.3 million youth, 59.3% volunteer an average of 3.5 hours per week, versus 49% of the adult population volunteer an average of 4.2 hours.
Communities enjoy benefits far beyond the financial aspects when youth contribute to service projects. When youth volunteer, adults tend to volunteer also, resulting in a lifelong volunteer. The community gains a generation of young people who care about where they live and are willing to make a difference in the community.
