Pedagogical Aspects of Voluntary School Work
Mária Jármai, Erzsébet; Palányi, Ildikó Zsupanekné
Practice and Theory in Systems of Education, v10 n1 p23-45 Mar 2015
The economic importance of voluntary work has been exceedingly appreciated in the last few decades. This is not surprising at all, because it is highly profitable according to the related estimated data. There are 115,9 million people doing voluntary work only in Europe, which means that they would create the world's 7th biggest economy with EUR 282 billion value creation if they formed an individual state. The organizations know that voluntary work has several advantages apart from the economic benefits. It is profitable both for the society and for the individuals as well. Several researches have proven that voluntary work positively influences the development of the personality, because the key-competencies--such as: co-operation, empathy, solidarity, conflict handling, problem solving, etc.--expected in the labor market can be improved.
