World Leisure Organization Commission on Volunteerism

A site about research on volunteering as a major form of leisure activity, the dissemination of the knowledge generated by such research, and the development of an expanding role of volunteerism as leisure and in leisure programs and services. Site also explains: An important assumption in this mandate, which springs from the leisure perspective, is that volunteering, among things, is primarily a creative, society-building activity. However, it loses this quality when it becomes merely a money-saving strategy imposed upon an altruistic citizenry by either the public or the private sector.
