Youth

The 2013 General Social Survey - Giving, Volunteering and Participating found that, for more than a decade, Canadian youth have volunteered more than any other age group. In fact, 53% of Canadians aged 15–24 are involved in volunteering. This puts youth well above the national average of 44%.

If we engage youth effectively, we can keep Canada’s voluntary sector strong. As many of Canada’s seniors retire from their volunteer careers, youth will have a vital role to play in building healthy and resilient communities.

It’s critical that organizations give youth positive volunteer experiences. Doing so can teach them the value of civic participation and lead to lifelong involvement.
