Students Volunteer More Than You May Think [Infographic]

For those who think that all college kids do outside of class is nap and party, think again. Turns out, the majority of college students actually do quite a bit of volunteering. In honor of last week’s International Volunteer Day, we’re posting an infographic created by Open Colleges titled “Can We Teach Compassion?”, which breaks down the percentages of students who volunteer across middle school, high school, and college.

According to the infographic, students who go to college are more likely to volunteer — in fact, studies show that college graduates volunteer twice as much as high school graduates and four times as much as high school dropouts. And students who start off volunteering in high school are more likely to stick with it: 77 percent of students who price cialis had service learning in high school volunteered regularly in college.
