  • 18. How to Encourage Young People to Volunteer  Invitations please… Being asked is the top reason motivating young people to volunteer (closely followed by “because it makes me feel good.”) In 2006, political organizations were also the most likely to recruit their volunteers by reaching out to them. In the other groups, young volunteers tended to make the initial contact.  Role Models… Young people who grow up in a household where someone volunteers are twice as likely to volunteer regularly, to be an active member of a group, and are more likely to follow politics and vote.  Let’s Discuss! Young people who discuss a volunteer experience are twice as likely as others to volunteer regularly. And, they are also 16% more likely to try to influence someone’s vote!
