Are More Teens Volunteering?

Category : Internships , Job Search

Forbes.com has an article about a survey from Harris Interactive that found that more teens volunteer than work part time.

“The random national telephone survey released this week by the Federal Way-based charity World Vision found that more teens volunteer to support a charitable cause – 56 percent – than have a part-time job – 39 percent.”

but adds,

“The Harris Interactive survey found a quarter of teens have become more involved in charitable causes or organizations as a result of the economic downturn, but the economy has also led to cuts in allowances, and has teens working more hours at a paying job.”

So are kids working more or less? It’s hard to tell, and while I hope that teens are getting more involved in their communities, the current state of the economy is forcing more kids into the workplace. Hopefully myfirstpaycheck.com can help them.
