THE MOTIVATIONAL PATTERNS OF WOMEN ENGAGED IN EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES OF VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATIONS.
HALL, CLEO A.
MOTIVATIONS, INTERESTS, AND NEEDS RELATED TO PARTICIPATION IN VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATIONS BY WOMEN WERE STUDIED. A THREE-PART INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED TO MEASURE SELECTED MOTIVATIONS, TO COLLECT DATA OF DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS, AND TO MEASURE SATISFACTION OF ACTIVITIES. THE SAMPLE WAS COMPOSED OF 997 HOME ECONOMICS EXTENSION CLUB MEMBERS AND 129 COUNTY EXTENSION HOME ECONOMISTS. DATA WERE GATHERED FROM RESPONSES TO THE INSTRUMENT MADE BY THE FEMALE SUBJECTS. DATA ANALYSIS INCLUDED COMBINING THE RANK ORDERING OF COMPONENT REASONS AND COMPUTATION OF MEAN RANKS AND STANDARD DEVIATIONS FOR COMBINED RANK ORDERINGS. THE STRONGEST MOTIVATION FOR PARTICIPATION WAS THE DESIRE FOR LEARNING EXPERIENCES. SOCIABILITY WAS NOT FOUND TO BE A PRIMARY MOTIVATING FORCE FOR PARTICIPATION. (RS)
