The Corporation for National and Community Service shares this great data on volunteering.  (Can’t see it in this post? Go here.)

Parents clearly invest a lot of time in their children’s schools, which is a gratifying thing to remember.

When you run a non profit that completely relies on volunteers it’s a whole different perspective. Leading volunteers to give away thousands of hours a year is a THRILL! In 2012 we had over 9,000 volunteers give 1.3 million hours of their time. That’s equivalent to 662 full time workers. What’s the trick? It’s connecting passion with opportunity. For us, the children (foster kids) we serve have changed our lives. It’s the children’s stories that continue to engage and drive our volunteers year after year. I just try to stay out of the way smile
