Astin, Alexander W.; Sax, Linda J.; Avalos, Juan
Review of Higher Education, v22 n2 p187-202 Win 1999
A study investigated whether effects of volunteer service during undergraduate years persist after college. Data were drawn from 12,376 students attending 209 institutions, who were followed up four and nine years after college entry. Results show that even when precollege service participation is controlled, student volunteer service during undergraduate years is positively associated with lasting cognitive and affective outcomes.
