Volunteers : A Social Profile, Hardback Book

Volunteers : A Social Profile Hardback

Part of the Philanthropic and Nonprofit Studies series

Hardback

Description

Who tends to volunteer and why? What causes attract certain types of volunteers? What motivates people to volunteer? How can volunteers be persuaded to continue their service?

Making use of a broad range of survey information to offer a detailed portrait of the volunteer in America, Volunteers provides an important resource for everyone who works with volunteers or is interested in their role in contemporary society.

Mark A. Musick and John Wilson address issues of volunteer motivation by focusing on individuals' subjective states, their available resources, and the influence of gender and race.

In a section on social context, they reveal how volunteer work is influenced by family relationships and obligations through the impact of schools, churches, and communities.

They consider cross-national differences in volunteering and historical trends, and close with consideration of the research on the organization of volunteer work and the consequences of volunteering for the volunteer.
