    This research examines the social justice activities of youth, and the religious or non-religious factors associated with such engagement. A main question posed relates to the motivation behind youth engagement in social justice activities: to what extent is it motivated by basic human compassion, religious faith, or other factors? Further, to what extent does religious faith help to sustain this type of engagement? Is modelling important? The research will be useful to pastoral planners, youth workers, educators and all concerned about social justice.
