  30. 30. The Answer to the Issue is: Service
  31. 31. Jardim, C., & Sofia Marques, d. S. (2018). Young people engaging in volunteering: Questioning a generational trend in an individualized society. Societies, 8(1), 8.https://doi.org/10.3390/soc8010008 Results clearly indicate that young people have an instrumental relationship with volunteering, which is mainly focused on the individual benefits that they believe they will acquire in their personal and professional life. Volunteering emerges as an opportunity to escape and to overcome the persisting challenges and constraints posed by our society; namely unemployment and precariousness, both of which are on the rise amongst young generations around the world.
  32. 32. Salisbury, J. J. M. (2014). Rural retiree volunteer motivations for nonfamily-based intergenerational communication  Key findings indicated participants felt they had little or nothing to share despite a variety of life experiences, found communication success with nontechnology-based catalysts, and felt the community has closed social circles. Transferring identity during retirement was difficult for many participants, a finding which supported the resulting project: a retiree social transition workshop. These findings suggest that those approaching retirement may benefit from identity transition support from employment to retirement, resulting in increased well-being in retirement, increased self-efficacy and motivations, and improved knowledge transfer to younger generations
  33. 33. Houger, V. P. (2011). Generational differences and the impact to employee engagement: A program design (Order No. 3443843)  Individuals working in a multi-generational organizations will find challenges in learning how to solicit and accurately interpret needs and expectations; communication styles, and how to respond positively and meaningfully to requests.
  34. 34. Youth Volunteer!  In a survey of American youth, Prudential (1995) found that 71% of students thought their communities would be better places to live if more adults volunteered. Additionally, they found volunteer levels to be higher among white students and highest among students in households where the chief wage earner had a post-graduate degree. Westat and Chapman (1999) found that 32% of urban high schools have a community service graduation requirement. Additionally, 64% of all public schools, including 83% of public high schools, had students participating in community service activities recognized and arranged through the school (Westat & Chapman, 1999). Finally, 57% of all public schools organized community service activities for their students (Westat & Chapman, 1999).
  35. 35. Motivating Generations to Volunteer  Early adulthood, which includes singles, young couples, and families, is the most diverse developmental stage. Virtual volunteer opportunities will often appeal to early adults. Some young parents need opportunities to volunteer at home, while other stay-at-home parents seek opportunities to get out of the house and interact with adults. Young professionals seeking to establish themselves in a community and occupation may be interested in volunteering or performing pro bono service. Extension professionals should consider providing childcare as an incentive to engage young parents. (With proper screening and orientation, the childcare providers could be volunteers as well!)
