Volunteer Hours: Volunteer Hours Phoenix, Arizona (Fox Sports) – When is your last time going to the gyms?

A study released this week by the Arizona Department of Public Health (DPH) found that more than 50 percent of Phoenix residents are actively volunteering.

The study was conducted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which also released a report in February which found that one in five teens reported having a sexual relationship with a peer who was also in a peer group.

In response to the study, the National Association of Public and Ethical-Duty Lobbyists issued a statement that said: “While the data presented in the NCMEC report is preliminary, there is a growing awareness among the general public and elected officials in Arizona that the state’s youth should be given a voice in the decision-making process.”

In February, the state legislature approved a bill that will require every local school district to allow students to participate in summer youth sports.
