Characteristics and Motivations of College Students Volunteering for Community Service.
Fitch, R. Thomas
Journal of College Student Personnel, v28 n5 p424-31 Sep 1987
Designed and administered the Student Community Service Involvement Survey to assess students' reasons for volunteering. College students indicated that their motives for involvement in community service were egoistic and altruistic. Demographically, student volunteers were not too different from the general student population. Volunteerism was generally part of these students' lives from an early age, however, because of role models. (Author/KS)
