Summary
  • This paper looks at the benefits of young people's participation in voluntary work in Queensland and the barriers to more widespread participation could be addressed. It stems from findings from the Growing up in Queensland project, which surveyed over 7,000 children and young people. Though many of the participants thought that volunteering was a good way to improve future employability and to give back to the community, they also said they were often prevented due to their age. This paper discusses the employment and economic benefits of volunteering, the positive impact on individual and community wellbeing, the barriers involved, and the opportunities to address these barriers. The legal requirements for organisations looking to engage young volunteers are noted in an appendix.
