Young-Il Kim is Research Assistant Professor at the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion. He earned his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Virginia. His research focuses on the ways in which the family and voluntary associations promote (or inhibit) generosity and social solidarity. His work has been published in Social Science Research, Social Science Quarterly, Sociological Perspectives, Sociological Focus, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, and Review of Religious Research. Some of the current research projects include: (1) religious homogamy and social insularity; (2) religion and volunteering among married couples; (3) character development of Cub Scouts; and (4) a randomized control trial of the effectiveness of TYRO Dads, a fatherhood program of the RIDGE Project.  When not working, he muses about how to be a better dad.
