9780851997506: Volunteering as Leisure/Leisure as Volunteering: An International Assessment

Volunteerism is a topic of increasing importance in this age of budget cuts, declining employment and amid the threat posed by other competing leisure pursuits. There are both social and economic benefits of volunteering. As we are becoming more reliant on volunteers, there is a need for a better understanding of why people take up volunteering, and how to recruit, manage, motivate, and support volunteers most effectively. In order for organisations that host volunteers to achieve the most from their volunteers, they must understand how to give them the best "leisure" experience. This book examines critical aspects of contemporary volunteerism, from the perspective of a variety of volunteering contexts. It will appeal to academic researchers and students in disciplines such as leisure, recreation, tourism, management and sociology as well as practitioners in the voluntary sector (including volunteers), National and Local Government and those organizing special events that depend on voluntary support.

Review:

"In all, this collection of articles constitutes a considerable step forward in the study of volunteering as leisure / leisure as volunteering. It helps to fill a gap in our understanding and to bridge the divide between leisure studies and volunteering studies." Angela Ellis, Leisure Studies, 2005"
