Annotation: The second in a series of 12 teaching modules on juvenile and criminal justice volunteerism, this work focuses on the primary goals of volunteerism, values, motivational factors, and political and social aspects.
Abstract: Volunteerism attempts to deliver help to troubled people, to facilitate the natural ability of people to help each other, to enable citizens to become involved in the governmental process and in social agencies and programs, and to help citizens learn through their own participation. Philosophical concepts which are the foundation of the volunteer movement include the beliefs that volunteerism is the American way and that volunteerism offers an outlet for the human need to relate to others. Motivational factors for the volunteer include the desire to become involved in something worthwhile, the desire to improve self-esteem, and the need to help people. A good volunteer program brings together into a dynamic relationship previously diverse efforts to improve the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Teaching materials and 19 references are supplied. For related volumes, see NCJ 83347, 83349-57, and 62914.
