Commissioned by Volunteering Queensland, the State of Volunteering in Queensland Report (2024) offered a timely overview of the volunteering sector in the State. As such, it served as a valuable resource for policymakers, community leaders, volunteer managers, and engaged citizens alike.

As part of Volunteering Queenslands’s Advocacy Plan, a companion on youth volunteering was commisioned. This report gives a detailed overview of the volunteering of young people aged 15 – 24 (youth) in Queensland. It uses information from one of the biggest surveys focused only on volunteering in the State, which included 1,516 people and 833 volunteer managers.

This report has been enhanced by the experiences of youth volunteers gathered through focus groups, and tells the previously unheard story of their volunteering, capturing the nuances of youth contributions to the Queensland community.
