Arizona’s Youth Volunteer Rate Continues to Increase

Although Arizona’s overall volunteer rate continues to lag behind the national average, the percentage of Arizona youth aged 16-19 who volunteer reached 30 percent in the latest Volunteering in America survey, three percentage points above the national average.  Arizona’s volunteering rate is lowest among its seniors, with large gaps between the volunteering rate of Arizona and the nation in the 65-74 and 75+ age categories.
