The United Nations created International Volunteer Day to be an opportunity for volunteers the world over to celebrate what they do.


In France, more and more people are getting involved in volunteering initiatives.


A study published on 3 December by France Bénévolat showed a 12% increase in the number of people volunteering in organisations.


Out of the 21 million French people over the age of 15 who volunteer, 12.5 million belong to a non-profit organisation, 4.2 million are part of another type of organisation, such as a trade union or a political or religious group, while 9.7 million people are unaffiliated with an organisation.
