It is just important to know why young people choose not to become volunteers so that your organization can find ways to address these concerns and become an organization that young people will be keen to support and become involved with.


One of the main reasons for young people not volunteering is that they are not aware of the opportunities that exist. It can also be because they have not been asked directly to become involved and therefore do not feel they can add value. This relates to how an organization communicates its work to the general public and how it develops youth-friendly massages that will make young people feel welcome and needed. It is important that people know about your organization, the work that it does, and your need for youth volunteers.
