[Autom. eng. transl.] The theme of volunteering and, more generally, of social action is particularly interesting when referring to the younger generations. The volume focuses on youth participation by reading it on an individual, family and social level. The general objective of the text is to deepen the theme of youth social commitment by providing a hypothesis of which factors are at the base of its two most widespread forms: volunteering and political commitment. The text combines theoretical reflection and empirical research with the aim of tracing possible paths for the recruitment, training and accompaniment of young people involved in voluntary work and politics. In particular, the present work unfolds along three sections: 1) the first illustrates the theoretical frame of reference, the state of the art regarding national and international research on social action and in particular on young adults; 2) the second section presents empirical studies; 3) the third exposes the applicative relapses. The motivations, values, life experiences and family relationships that foster social commitment will be taken into consideration. Starting from the results of empirical research, it is therefore possible to trace operational methods and frameworks for reading the phenomenon, useful both to the young people involved and to those who, for various reasons, are interested in promoting social commitment.
