This study aims to enhance understanding of young adults’ social outcome. The existence of large multinational Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) data provides the opportunity to explore the relationship between young adults' propensity to volunteer and various background data in several countries. The focus of this study was on investigating the relationship between young adults volunteering and their educational attainment, social trust, gender, participation in lifelong learning, and cognitive skills in numeracy. The findings suggest that while significant characteristic differences exist among millennials who engage in volunteering activities, only a few of these characteristics such as their numeracy skills, participation in lifelong learning, and social trust influenced their propensity to engage in civic activities. These findings contribute to our understanding of the factors that influence millennials' participation in civic activities.
