Identifying College Students Likely to Participate in a Travel Abroad Volunteer Project
Nonis, Sarath A.; Relyea, Clint
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v25 n2 p83-96 2014
Foreign travel provides excellent opportunities for college students to broaden their global mindset. While empirical research focusing on variables that influence student participation in study abroad programs are available, there is a paucity of research that focuses on travel abroad programs relating to participating in volunteer projects. Using a sample of 193 undergraduate business students, this study attempts to develop profiles of students that are "not likely," "maybe," and "most likely" to participate in a travel abroad volunteer project. Those who were "mostly likely" to participate had traveled abroad before, demonstrated high levels of self-congruity and diversity seeking, and stated financial costs to be less of a constraint in participating in such a project. Discussion of findings and direction for future research is also provided.
