Does Age Matter in Episodic Volunteering?
The research highlighted in this Research to Practice explores age and episodic volunteers. Are individuals in different age groups motivated to volunteer for episodic events for different reasons? Do they experience their volunteering differently? Do they assess their experience differently? The answers to these questions are based on survey responses from 2,270 volunteers in six countries, including USA, Japan, Switzerland, Colombia, South Africa and Israel. Implications for episodic-volunteer management are also provided.
