Abstract: A large body of quantitative evidence has demonstrated a connection between volunteering and improved well-being, especially among older adults. However, few qualitative studies have been done to better understand how or why this relationship emerges, nor examined what happens to well-being when older adults must retire from volunteering. This qualitative study builds on these findings by interviewing senior hospital volunteers (65 or older) who engage in regularly scheduled volunteering about their experiences, motivations, and plans for future engagement. It also explores the impact of transitioning out of long-held volunteer roles on well-being.

Abstract: Nonprofit scholars have devoted substantial research attention to episodic volunteering, particularly the motivations and behaviors of volunteers. The management of these human resources has commanded much less inquiry. In this research we conceive of the primary managerial challenge as translating these bits (“episodes”) of volunteer energy into productive volunteering, and the volunteer administrator as the central actor in this process. Based on how volunteers are recruited into host organizations and where they are placed in service roles, we develop four models of volunteer management. This research defines and elaborates the different models and their implications for host organizations and volunteers.

Abstract: The present study investigated motivations and dispositional factors which may contribute to volunteering, both in volunteers and in non-volunteers. Recent research has proposed a functional approach to volunteerism, where both personality and social motivations may explain volunteer outcomes, such as satisfaction, time spent volunteering, length of volunteer activity. Volunteer motivations were assessed through the Italian adaptation (Capanna, Steca, & Imbimbo, 2002) of the Volunteer Function Inventory (VFI; Omoto & Snyder, 1995). Self-efficacy and self-esteem (dispositional variables) and life satisfaction, volunteer engagement - measured as hours volunteered per week - and persistence in volunteer activity - measured as years of volunteering - (outcome variables) were also assessed. Volunteers from different organizations (n = 143, 69F) and non-volunteers with similar socio-demographic characteristics (who filled out an adapted version of the questionnaire with conditional rephrasing of the items related to volunteerism; n = 113, 59F) partecipated in the study. Results showed that self-efficacy and life satisfaction were higher among volunteers. A path analysis showed that self-esteem was a significant predictor of life satisfaction in both volunteers and non-volunteers, while self-efficacy directly predicted life satisfaction only in volunteers. Among the volunteers, persistence in volunteer activities over time was significantly predicted by career and social motives, while engagement was predicted only by career motives. Among the non-volunteers, intention to start a volunteer activity was significantly predicted by self-efficacy and by values and understanding motives. Implications for encouraging people to be actively involved and to continue participating in volunteer activity are discussed.

Abstract: Research on volunteering has mainly focused on the explanatory demographics and functional motives to volunteer, but little is known on the reasons that people have not to volunteer. However, these reasons need more academic attention, as they form the barriers that people impede to volunteer. Therefore, we examine for a sample of 1248 respondents their reasons not to volunteer. We apply an exploratory factor analysis and analyze each factor in depth based on a series of regression analyses. This allows us to get an insight in the distinct reasons not to volunteer for various groups in society.
