    “Are Millennials More Self-Sacrificing and Community-Minded Than Previous Generations?”

    This was interesting: “Millennials did show increased levels of community volunteering. However, Twenge explains that this most likely resulted from high schools being much more likely to encourage community volunteerism through school-organized programs. Only 9% of schools did so in 1984, while 46% did in 1999.”
