Volunteering is Catching is a study of young people’s experience of volunteering in Victoria and is based on the findings of an online survey of four hundred young people aged 12 to 25. The report details the areas young people were volunteering, their motivations, the barriers as well as the perceived impact of volunteering. The emerging trends for both volunteers and young people who have never volunteered are detailed. There are differences in the experiences of young people with volunteering based upon age, gender, disability, geographical location and cultural diversity which are discussed in this report.
