Corporation for National & Community Service


The Corporation for National and Community Service, in collaboration with the U.S. Census Bureau and the nonprofit coalition Independent Sector, in early 2005 conducted the first major federal survey if volunteering by teenagers in more than a decade. The survey collected information on the volunteering habits if youth between the ages if 12 and 18. A new Corporation study based on the survey, titled "Youth Helping America," looks at the state if youth volunteering and the connections between youth volunteering and the primary social institutions to which teenagers are exposed family, religious congregations, and schools.
