Young people may not always have the same financial resources as older generations, and they may be unable to donate to causes about which they are enthusiastic. Money, however, is only one aspect of generosity. Gifts of time and skill can make a significant difference in a community, and young people may use these resources to become active philanthropists.

Depending on the type of organization, the influence of particular youth service groups varies. For example, KORI Youth Charity focuses on providing leadership and pre-professional skills to underrepresented young people. In addition to partnering with other organizations, KORI connects youths throughout the UK through activities and networking. This youth charity also aids young migrants in advancing their careers and employment opportunities.

Nonprofits should carefully evaluate the long-term impact of youth service groups, as they would gain immensely from implementing programs that engage and motivate youth volunteers. The work done by these volunteers would most certainly have a return that outweighed the time and effort required to coordinate volunteers, as it might be planned to operate as an investment in the nonprofit’s future donor, volunteer, and advocacy base. Nonprofits will aim to cultivate the next generation of enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and inspired community leaders as kids participate in service and become more civic minded. Youth who volunteer might see themselves as a useful resource for NGOs and the community at large.
