Overarching Themes
  • Within our interviews, we found that when a culture of volunteerism is instilled in an office, there’s more likely to be a community presence by those employees/volunteers outside of work.
  • Using the NCOC form, we found that high numbers in the “civic knowledge and agency” category was correlated with higher levels of online and community engagement.
