New Research Released: Annual Volunteering and Civic Life in America

New annual research on Volunteering and Civic Life in America was released by the National Conference on Citizenship and the Corporation for National and Community Service.

The report has several key findings. Most noteworthy, Americans aged 35-44 have the highest volunteering rate at 31.3%. Older generations have the highest average number of volunteer hours at about 92 hours. Other elements of this demographic population were evaluated including the nature in which they enjoy dinner (68.5% have dinner with family or friends frequently) and other involvement beyond volunteering (36.3% are involved in civic, recreational or religious organizations). 

With a new election coming up just next year, understanding American's civic involvement is exceedingly important. The full report can be reviewed here: https://www.nationalservice.gov/vcla
