The Danish volunteers are a diverse group in age, education, income, and so
on. Here we have gathered some demographic data on the people you meet in
- Gender - Men and
woman volunteer with about the same ratio; men are over-represented in sports
associations while women are more inclined to volunteer in social areas.
- Age - Since
volunteering is a national sport in Denmark, it comes as no surprise that all
ages from youth to seniors all have high, steady radios of volunteers.
- Education - The
higher the level of education, the higher the likelihood of Danes volunteering
- so when volunteering in Denmark there
is a good chance of meeting well-educated people.
- Job - People
who have a job are more likely to do volunteer work than unemployed people. Statistics
even show that people working more than 40 hours a week volunteer more often
than people working less.
If you want a network in Denmark, then volunteering is a great place to
start, because it is what many Danes do in their spare time. You can build an
interesting, social network while volunteering but, just as important,
volunteering might give you a valuable professional network since it often is
the socioeconomically advantaged Danes who participate in volunteer work.
