How Do Gen Z Students Spend Their Time?

School is cool: our youngest generation is spending more time on homework and volunteering than any generation in history. Up by almost 1 hour more than in 2005 – 2009, Gen Z spends a weekly summation of 6.48 hours per week on homework and 2.66 hours per week volunteering, which has doubled from 1985 – 1989. 

Additionally, these students are devoting more time to learning and less on working. Although fewer college students are working while in school, those who do work are working less. From 2010 – 2016, students worked an average of 6.66 hours per work in comparison to the 11.26 hours per week students worked from 1985 – 1989.

Teens also enjoy spending their summers in school so they can earn credit before entering college. Gen Z is on track to become the most educated and entrepreneurial generation in history. Continuing reading for more insights on how our youth is reshaping the college years.
