  • 1. BOWLING TOGETHER: SOCIAL CAPITAL AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 2.
    • Nearly 61 million Americans age 16 and older volunteered in 2007, giving 8.1 billion hours of service worth over $158 billion, the Corporation for National and Community Service says.
    • But an estimated 22 million volunteers, or over one in three Americans who volunteer, stopped volunteering between 2006 and 2007.
    • Research suggests volunteers who use their skills when they serve are more likely to keep volunteering.
    • Research also underscores the need for nonprofits to be looking for ways to better engage Baby Boomers, young people, women, and “intensive” volunteers.
    • It also shows women volunteer at higher rates than do men, and that women with children and working women volunteer at higher rates that other women.
    • Previous research has shown that volunteers tend to give more to charity that givers who do not volunteer, and that people who start volunteering at an early age tend to keep volunteering.
