Young people stepping up in ‘staggering’ numbers to lend a helping hand

The younger generation are bucking the lazy and self-absorbed stereotype, volunteering to help others in droves.

Centre for Volunteering CEO Gemma Rygate told Deborah Knight more than 87 per cent of NSW residents aged 18-24 volunteered either formally or informally in 2020.

“The figure is staggering.

“They’re doing all sorts of things; directly helping people, individuals and groups in their communities, working for the environment, support work, coaching.

“They really do step up, so it’s a myth that young people don’t volunteer.”
