Volunteer growth in America a review of trends since 1974 by Robert Grimm ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This research brief, Volunteer Growth in America: A Review of Trends Since 1974, provides an in-depth look at how volunteering compares by age groups for the period from 1974 to 2005. While previous reports released under our Volunteering in America series have looked at volunteering over the past four years, this report presents a historical view of volunteering through an analysis of data collected in 1974, 1989, and 2002-2005 from the Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS is a comprehensive and scientifically rigorous survey of 60,000 American households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition to the two volunteer surveys administered in 1974 and 1989, the Census Bureau has administered a volunteer survey each year since September 2002 with the Corporation's support. It is our hope that this report will help us capitalize on Americans' interest in volunteering and generate more opportunities for people to begin or deepen their commitment to volunteering."--P. 1

Issue brief capitalizing on volunteers' skills : volunteering by occupation in America ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Each year more than 60 million people volunteer their time and talents to nonprofit organizations across America. These volunteers work to tackle some of our nation's most difficult challenges such as literacy, healthcare, hunger and homelessness, keeping young people in school, disaster relief and recovery and so much more. The Corporation for National and Community Service (the Corporation) creates opportunities for Americans to meet these critical needs through service, helps strengthen the capacity of communities and organizations to use volunteers effectively, and works to engage more Americans in a lifetime of volunteering and service. While volunteers already make valuable contributions to their community and country, nonprofit organizations can greatly enhance their use of volunteers, improve volunteer retention, and gain greater benefit to their operations by taking a fresh look at their volunteer infrastructure and management. There is an opportunity for nonprofits to expand and even reinvent their concept of how volunteers can contribute to their organizations and communities in order to use them more effectively. All too often volunteers are assigned to activities that do not fully capitalize on their individual skills and talents. In order to help nonprofits more effectively gain from the potential value of volunteers' skills and to encourage more adults to use their skills in their volunteer activities, especially in employee volunteer programs, the Corporation has launched a new initiative called A Billion + Change. Founded by the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation and led by the Corporation for National and Community Service, A Billion + Change is a three-year campaign to recast pro bono service--once the sole purview of law firms--as a cross-sector solution with the potential to transform the 21st century. The campaign's goal is to generate $1 billion worth of skilled expertise to help nonprofits meet community needs while providing technical assistance and resources to participating nonprofits and companies. In support of A Billion + Change and the Corporation's goal to help nonprofits effectively use volunteers, this brief seeks to analyze the extent to which volunteers are already utilizing their professional and occupational skills in their volunteer service assignments and determine potential opportunities to better tap into those skills and talents. Capitalizing on Volunteers' Skills is based on data from the 2005, 2006, and 2007 Volunteer Supplements to the Current Population Survey (CPS). The annual surveys are administered through the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics through a partnership with the Corporation."
