    Oppure puoi fare un piccolo lavoro di ricerca, prendi un tot di associazioni di volontariato, proponi un piccolo questionario con domande inerenti la struttura, chi vi e' impiegato, numero utenti, tipologia utenza, figure professionali impiegate, etc...e poi ne fai analisi, magari concentrandoti su alcuni aspetti. sarebbe interessante un confronto tra associazioni laiche e religiose ad esempio...

    Qualche articolo sull'argomento:

    VOLUNTEER SATISFACTION AND VOLUNTEER ACTION: A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH. By: Finkelstein, Marcia A.. Social Behavior & Personality: An International Journal, 2008, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p9-17, 8p, 1 chart Abstract: A functional approach to understanding the volunteer process was applied to 192 predominantly long-term hospice volunteers. The relationships among volunteer antecedents (motives), experiences (motive fulfillment, satisfaction), and outcomes (time spent volunteering, length of service) were examined. Participants reported greater satisfaction the more their experiences fulfilled their motivations for helping. Satisfaction also predicted time spent volunteering although not volunteer longevity. The amount of time volunteers devoted to the hospice and length of service were only weakly related to either motive or motive fulfillment. Results suggest that motivations for helping should be determined early in the volunteering process in order to match individuals with tasks they will find most rewarding. Less motivated or satisfied individuals may offer less time to the organization but remain volunteers in good standing for many years. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 30104104)

    A Study of Volunteers in Community-Based Restorative Justice Programs. By: Souza, Karen A.; Dhami, Mandeep K.. Canadian Journal of Criminology & Criminal Justice, Jan2008, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p31-57, 27p Abstract: Community-based restorative justice (RJ) programs rely heavily on volunteers to perform a range of duties, including facilitating case conferences. We surveyed 76 volunteers from 12 RJ programs throughout British Columbia, Canada, in order to (1) identify the characteristics of volunteers, (2) document their involvement in RJ, (3) measure their motivations to volunteer, (4) explore the skills they perceive to be useful, (5) document the training they receive, and (6) determine the factors that influence satisfaction with their roles. This study was guided by a conceptual model of the RJ volunteer process. We found that RJ volunteers comprise primarily older Caucasian women. Volunteers were mostly recruited by word of mouth and were motivated by their commitment to RJ ideals. Although they brought a wealth of skills and qualifications, volunteers were trained in order to provide a range of services to programs. Finally, volunteers were generally satisfied with their roles in RJ programs. These findings have implications for volunteer recruitment, training, and retention.

    Vocteer: A Collaborative Volunteer Program for Persons with Severe Psychiatric Disabilities. By: Carone, Stacia A.; Burker, Eileen J.. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, Fall2007, Vol. 31 Issue 2, p149-151, 3p Abstract: Vocteer is a university and community support agency collaborative program that matches undergraduate and graduate students with persons diagnosed with severe psychiatric disabilities in community-based volunteer positions. The program aims to improve self-esteem, community inclusion, and vocational skills of program participants. In addition, Vocteer helps participants develop skills necessary for employment or independent volunteering. The program, reports of participant satisfaction, and findings are described. Reports from the literature are presented and provide support for further exploration and development of such programs. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.2975/31.2.2007.149.151 (AN 27218984)

    THE THREE-STAGE MODEL OF VOLUNTEERS' DURATION OF SERVICE. By: Chacón, Fernando; Vecina, María Luisa; Dávila, María Celeste. Social Behavior & Personality: An International Journal, 2007, Vol. 35 Issue 5, p627-642, 16p, 2 charts, 5 diagrams Abstract: The main objective of this paper was to describe the latest results of a longitudinal study carried out by our research team with a sample of social work volunteers, whose one-year follow-up has just been completed, allowing us to draw up what we have called the "Threestage model of volunteers' duration". Use of this model overcomes some of the apparent contradictions between the different models of volunteerism. For example, for the Functional Model, motivations, and more specifically their satisfaction, would be the best predictors of service duration, however, for the Role Identity Model, what best predicts service duration would be role identity. We assume that in the initial phase of volunteerism, motivations and their satisfaction are more closely related to service duration than role identity. Nevertheless, to predict longer duration of service and greater involvement, the fundamental variable is organizational commitment. Finally, the Role Identity Model is that which best explains sustained volunteerism. Instruments used included the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (Mowday, Steers, & Porter, 1979) reduced and adapted by Dávila & Chacón, and The Role Identity Scale (Grube & Pilavin, 2000, adapted by Dávila & Chacón, 2004).

    APPLYING THEORIES OF INSTITUTIONAL HELPING TO INFORMAL VOLUNTEERING: MOTIVES, ROLE IDENTITY, AND PROSOCIAL PERSONALITY. By: Finkelstein, Marcia A.; Brannick, Michael T.. Social Behavior & Personality: An International Journal, 2007, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p101-114, 14p, 3 charts Abstract: Dispositional variables from a volunteer model were shown to apply to informal volunteering. The model integrates two theories of the volunteer process: functional analysis and role identity theory. Undergraduates, (N = 139), completed an informal volunteer inventory, and measures of motives, role identity, and prosocial personality. Two dimensions of informal volunteering: people-oriented and task-oriented were revealed. Both correlated with motives for helping and role identity. The personality dimension of Helpfulness was associated with both Informal Volunteering - People (IVP) and Informal Volunteering - Task (IVT), while Other-oriented Empathy correlated only with IVP. This study is the first to demonstrate the applicability of a model of formal volunteering to ongoing informal helping. Variables heretofore conceptualized as describing individuals within organizations, are seen as equally important in initiating and sustaining informal helping. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 23965193)

    Developmental Antecedents of Young Adult Civic Engagement. By: Obradović, Jelena; Masten, Ann S.. Applied Developmental Science, 2007, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p2-19, 18p, 4 charts Abstract: Civic engagement was studied in relation to overall development in adolescence, emerging adulthood, and young adulthood to examine how earlier activity involvement and success in prior and concurrent age-salient domains of competence may contribute to 2 forms of civic engagement in adulthood (citizenship and volunteering). Data on 163 youth were drawn from a longitudinal study of competence in a normative, urban school sample. Results indicate that competence and activity involvement in adolescence predict citizenship and volunteering in adulthood, 10 to 15 years later. As hypothesized, however, the level of competence in developmentally salient domains in adolescence and emerging adulthood fully mediate the predictive significance of concurrent activity involvement for civic engagement outcomes in adulthood. Findings also suggest that citizenship and volunteering are distinct types of civic engagement that should be studied separately. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/10888690709336720 (AN 31563742)

    Opportunities or Obligations? Civic Engagement and Older Adults. By: Martinson, Marty. Generations, Winter2006, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p59-65, 7p; Abstract: The article presents an essay that focuses on the promotion of civic engagement and how the discourse around it affects and reflects the meanings constructed and experienced about aging in the U.S. The author used a critical gerontology approach to examine the potential impact of civic engagement on images and perceptions of aging and what it means to grow old. The critical gerontology approach explores why political, economic, and social structures affect the aging process of the population. According to the author, civic engagement as volunteerism, is presented as a way of attaining validity in a society that values productivity and individualism over other ways of being and relating.

    Expanding the Boundaries of Corporate Volunteerism: Tapping the Skills, Talent, and Energy of Retirees. By: Gonyea, Judith G.; Googins, Bradley K.. Generations, Winter2006, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p78-84, 7p; Abstract: The article focuses on the business sector and examines the roles of corporate America in increasing the commitment of the baby boomers generation to volunteerism and civic engagement in the U.S. Company volunteer programs emerged as a core component of American businesses' social responsibility initiatives. American companies recognized their employees as valuable resources and natural extensions of their corporate contributions to improve conditions in the local communities. Three significant trends that suggest why promoting inclusion of retirees in company volunteer programs is important are discussed, including the emergence of the workplace as community, new views of retirement, and the dramatic growth of company volunteer programs.

    Volunteering in Middle and Later Life: Is Health a Benefit, Barrier or Both? By: Yunqing Li; Ferraro, Kenneth F.. Social Forces, Sep2006, Vol. 85 Issue 1, p497-519, 23p Abstract: The positive association between volunteering and health has been widely interpreted as evidence of the salutary effect of volunteering during adulthood. Using three waves of data from a national survey, this study uses structural equation models to examine the relationships among volunteering, functional limitations, and depressive symptoms during middle and later adulthood. The findings reveal a salutary effect of volunteering in later life as well as a compensatory mechanism. By contrast, only a barrier mechanism was uncovered in middle age: Depressive symptoms decreased volunteer participation over time. The results demonstrate life course variation in the relationship between volunteering and health and suggest greater attention to selection processes in the study of social engagement and health.

    Do Not Forget about Your Volunteers: A Qualitative Analysis of Factors Influencing Volunteer Turnover. By: Skoglund, Andrea Galiette. Health & Social Work, Aug2006, Vol. 31 Issue 3, p217-220, 4p; Abstract: This article presents a qualitative analysis of factors influencing volunteer turnover. In 1993 it was reported that formal volunteer work was performed by 89.2 million Americans and worth an estimated $182.3 billion. Individuals who manage and oversee volunteer programs face a twofold challenge: orienting, training, and monitoring volunteers as well as retaining these volunteers. An effective orientation and training of a program's volunteers will engage participants in a way that results in volunteers' willingness to participate in the agency's volunteer program for a significant period of time. However, the author asserts that if there is a breakdown in one of these functions, it is not long before an organization's volunteer program will start to flounder. (AN 22452084)

    Using Age, Cohort, and Period to Study Elderly Volunteerism. By: Rosenberg, Ed; Letrero, Irene L.. Educational Gerontology, May2006, Vol. 32 Issue 5, p313-334, 22p, 4 charts, 1 graph Abstract: American volunteers, both informally and through organizations like the Corporation for National Service, make huge contributions to the well-being of millions of Americans and, via their unpaid or minimally-reimbursed work, to the American economy. Can America continue to count on maintaining or increasing volunteer contributions in the future? This question is especially important as the Baby Boomers replace the current generation of older Americans. This article provides faculty and students with information on elderly volunteering. It suggests and demonstrates using age-cohort-period analysis to understand different forces affecting volunteering by older Americans. A major benefit of age-cohort-period analysis is preventing faulty conclusions and, consequently, faulty policy decisions and waste of resources. Such analysis can also enhance current and future efforts to recruit and retain volunteers, particularly among the elderly. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/03601270600564088 (AN 20213032)

    Being a hospice volunteer. By: Andersson, Birgit; Öhlén, Joakim. Palliative Medicine, Dec2005, Vol. 19 Issue 8, p602-609, 8p Abstract: The aim of this study was to obtain an understanding of what it means to be a hospice volunteer in a country without a tradition of hospice or palliative volunteer care services. Ten volunteers from three different hospices in Sweden were interviewed. Their narratives were interpreted with a phenomenological hermeneutic method. Three themes were disclosed: motives for becoming involved in hospices, encountering the hospice and encountering the patient. The interpretations disclose a need for the volunteer to be affirmed as a caring person and received in fellowship at the hospice. Positive encounters with a hospice are closely related to personal growth. Volunteers feel rejected if their need for meaning and for belonging to the hospice is not satisfied. This shows that hospices need to set goals in terms of volunteer support, particularly regarding existential issues following the encounter with the hospice and the patient.

    A Functional Approach to Volunteerism: Do Volunteer Motives Predict Task Preference? By: Houle, Barbara J.; Sagarin, Brad J.; Kaplan, Martin F.. Basic & Applied Social Psychology, Dec2005, Vol. 27 Issue 4, p337-344, 8p, 2 charts Abstract: A central premise of the functional approach is that the same behavior may serve different functions for different individuals. More recently, this approach has been used to understand the motives behind volunteering. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether certain volunteer tasks (e.g., reading to the blind, entering data) differentially satisfy certain motives (e.g., expression of values, career building) and whether individuals prefer tasks with benefits aligned with their own preferred volunteer motives. Results suggested that people idiosyncratically differentiate tasks based on the motives they satisfy. Furthermore, when given a choice, individuals prefer tasks with benefits that match their personally relevant motives. Practical implications for volunteer organizations are discussed.

    Attachment, caregiving, and volunteering: Placing volunteerism in an attachment-theoretical framework. By: Gillath, Omri; Shaver, Phillip R.; Mikulincer, Mario; Nitzberg, Rachel E.; Erez, Ayelet; Van Ijzendoorn, Marinus H.. Personal Relationships, Dec2005, Vol. 12 Issue 4, p425-446, 22p, 5 charts Abstract: Recent studies based on attachment theory demonstrate that dispositional and experimentally manipulated attachment security facilitate cognitive openness and empathy, strengthen self-transcendent values, and foster tolerance of out-group members, suggesting an effect of one behavioral system, attachment, on another, caregiving. Here we report 2 studies conducted in 3 different countries (Israel, the Netherlands, and the United States) to determine whether the 2 dimensions of attachment insecurity—anxiety and avoidance—are related to real-world altruistic volunteering. In both studies and across the 3 locations, avoidant attachment was related to volunteering less and having less altruistic and exploration-oriented motives for volunteering. Anxious attachment was related to self-enhancing motives for volunteering. Additional results suggested that volunteering ameliorates the interpersonal problems of individuals high in anxiety and that volunteering has more beneficial effects if it is done for altruistic reasons. Future directions for experimental research on this topic are outlined. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1111/j.1475-6811.2005.00124.x (AN 18589981)
