Volunteerism is a topic of increasing importance in this age of budget cuts and declining employment. There are both social and economic benefits of volunteering. As we are becoming more reliant on volunteers, there is a need for better understanding of why people take up volunteering and how to recruit, manage, motivate, and support volunteers. In order to get the most from volunteers, we must understand how to give them the best "leisure" experience. This book examines all aspects of volunteerism, as it relates to leisure, and the contemporary leisure phenomena from the perspective of volunteering.
