Volunteerism and Arrest in the Transition to Adulthood.
Janikula, Jennifer; Uggen, Christopher
Social Forces, v78 n1 p331-62 Sep 1999
Data from the Youth Development Study, a prospective longitudinal study that followed approximately 1,000 Minnesota ninth graders for seven years, indicate that performing volunteer work as a teenager had a strong negative relationship to being arrested as a young adult. Age dependencies in the nature and effect of volunteer work are discussed. Contains 103 references. (Author/SV)
