Gen Y, more commonly referred to as the Millennial group, consists of nearly 80 million people and accounts for about a quarter of the population. Gen Z, mostly still in their teen years, accounts for over 26% of the total population - the largest demographic in the United States. While many people want to give Gen Y and Gen Z a bad rap because of their youth, their unique approach and changing mindset provide a huge advantage to the volunteering community. Imagine what half of the world’s population could do if they set their minds to it.
