Summary note:
This quantitative study used year 15 data from “fragile families” to determine the factors that influence youth volunteering (Professor McLanahan and Garfinkel 2016). The study used a multiple regression in order to analyze the significance of factors in youth volunteering. The results concluded that religion, age, peer motivation, grades in history or social studies, and failure in academics are related to volunteer participation. Also, factors of religion, race, grades in math and history or social studies, failure in school, and family engagement are significant in determining the frequency of volunteering in youth.
