Data released last week shows that only 18.7% of 20- to 24-year-olds participated in volunteer work
between September 2013 and September 2014, with those aged 25 to 34 not
far behind at 22% participation. Percentages rose considerably among
those aged 35 to 44 before tapering off among successively older groups. It would be easy to say millennials are lazy and selfish, but that’s not actually the case.
