This, Dec. 16, 2014, photo shows Patrick McAnaney, from the company 1776, as he volunteers in the clothing room with a group of his coworkers at Bread for the City in Washington. Tired of hearing people grouse about a tuned-out, apathetic younger generation? Well, here’s a comeback: Today’s young Americans are serious when it comes to volunteering. In fact, measured against their parents as young adults back in the 1980s, those under 30 today are more likely to say that citizens have a “very important obligation” to give their time, an Associated Press-GfK poll finds.
