PREFACE: This research was sponsored by Volunteering Auckland (VA). It is part of their wider research into volunteering by young people (13 to 18 years). Previous work carried out by VA showed that at the age of 18 years volunteers are able to carry out leadership roles. Youth volunteering is reinforced by links with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award and the William Pike Challenge. Girls tend to volunteer more readily than boys, who may be caught up with sport, which is promoted by schools. Also noted was the tendency towards micro volunteering that is short-term and one-off. Young people’s growing concern for the environment, climate change and human rights resulted in volunteering
