Report: Volunteering in America Remains Strong

The new Volunteering and Civic Life in America research report shows that service to others continues to be a priority for millions of Americans. The findings from the annual study were released today by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC).

This year’s study found that 62.6 million adults (25.4 percent) volunteered through an organization in 2013. Altogether, Americans volunteered nearly 7.7 billion hours last year and the estimated value of that service is $173 billion.
