Education and volunteering
January 30, 2008
Individuals with higher levels of educational attainment volunteer at higher rates than those with less education.
Among persons age 25 and over, more than 4 in 10 college graduates volunteered during the year ending in September 2007. In comparison, fewer than 2 in 10 high school graduates and almost 1 in 10 of those with less than a high school diploma volunteered in that period.
