Recent years have seen a plethora of new research on volunteers and volunteerism. In this issue of “Along the Web,” we’ll focus on “volunteer management infrastructure,” and examine how well prepared we are to actually work with all those volunteers who are lurking out there.
The picture isn’t a pretty one.
We’ll conduct our examination on a country-by-country basis, including the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and Australia, in order of the earliest to the most recent studies. We welcome references to similar studies in additional countries, including those in languages other than English. Please use the reader response button and share the information.
