Men are volunteering less than women
Why This is Important to Nonprofits
Convergence of Knight Connect: A Case Study of Volunteer UCF
Volunteer UCF is an agency that promotes community service on the UCF campus by providing a variety of programs, committees, events, and continuous projects throughout the school year.
Affiliated under the Office of Student Involvement (OSI) and funded through Student Government Association, it is the mission of Volunteer UCF to promote civic engagement and education on various social issues to the UCF student body (Plante, Currie, & Olson, 2014).
