Over the last few years, volunteering in America has slowly declined. In Florida, only 20% of residents volunteer ranking them 48th among the 50 states. Young adults had a lower volunteer rate at 14% while older adults had the largest volunteer rate at 29%. I wanted to use graphic design to increase volunteerism with young adults in Palm Beach County, Florida for the services and programs with the least amount of participation such as sports.
Pitch In is about increasing and raising awareness of volunteerism with young adults in Palm Beach County, Florida by using a reward system to motivate participation in a variety of athletics. Time and energy are the largest reasons for the lack of volunteer participation in young adults. By raising awareness of volunteering through sporting events, a social media app using a reward system, and with the help of local colleges, young adults will make volunteering more of a priority in their lives.
