In addition, all but one of the interviewees were currently undertaking formal and/or informal volunteering, ranging from supporting other youth programmes, sports coaching to self-funding trips to Africa to support community development programmes. According to the Cabinet Office (2015) young people aged 16 to 25 are the most likely to volunteer of any age range, with over a third (35%) volunteering at least once a month. Indeed, most of the participants we interviewed volunteer regularly – nine out of ten had volunteered within the last six months, and half volunteer on a regular basis. All those volunteering had progressed into volunteering as young people through networks established through the VSO.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

Qualitative Interviewbefragungen (persönlich)
Interviews were semi-structured, each following a similar line of questioning whilst allowing for individual perspectives and events to be discussed (Mason 1996, Kvale 2007). Each interview lasted approximately one hour, was recorded, transcribed and analysed in order to explore the content of the interview (Oliver, Serovich, and Mason 2005). [...] Sampling of the interviewees was purposive - members of staff from the VSO acted as gatekeepers and contacted a range of former youth participants who had been involved in one of these youth participation focused projects and sought consent for their contact details and names to be passed over to the researchers. [...] Pseudonyms have been used where participants have been quoted, as outlined at the end of this section.
