Some Correlates of Success and Satisfaction in Urban VISTA.
Cantor, Marjorie H.
A study of volunteer success and satisfaction among a group of urban VISTA volunteers who trained at Columbia School of Social Work attempted to determine what enables a VISTA volunteer to perform effectively in his field assignment, and to define the roots of volunteer satisfaction with the VISTA experience. Factors studied are grouped into five main areas of consideration: the demographic characteristics of volunteers and their social and political attitudes; the VISTA job (type of assignment and relevant job attributes); supervisor and supervision (the importance of, the mode, and the relationships established); the sponsoring agency (structure, attitudes towards the poor, and the use of volunteers); and living in the neighborhood (impact and involvement). (For other reports, see AC 002 352, AC 006 639, and AC 006 640.) (MF)
