Youth Volunteer Retention in Québec

Title
Youth Volunteer Retention in Québec
Abstract
Volunteers are major contributors to nonprofit organizations in Québec and across Canada. Despite their contributions, studies reveal that volunteer retention is an aspect that remains neglected (Merrilees, Miller & Yakimova, 2020). There are many reasons why people give their time and remain in the same nonprofit. Consequently, there is no individual factor that guarantees retention; it differs depending on age group, gender, socio-economic background, area of volunteerism, etc. Improving retention is in the best interest of nonprofits. Although youth are the age group that volunteer the most (according to Volunteers Canada), Québec is the province with the lowest rate (as stated by statcan) and has much to learn from the rest of the country.
