Protestants raise volunteers

Students at Protestant high schools are more likely to volunteer as adults than those who attended other institutions. A study by Jonathan Hill and Kevin de Dulk, professors at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Mich., found that 83 percent of graduates of Protestant high schools volunteer as adults, compared to those from Roman Catholic (55 percent), public (48 percent), homeschool (23 percent) and secular private (10 percent) institutions. Students at Roman Catholic institutions were most likely (87 percent) to volunteer while enrolled in high school, and homeschoolers were least likely (63 percent volunteered).
