AbstractThis thesis examines the impact of positive and negative recognition on future willingness to volunteer. Through extensive background research and a survey of nearly 400 college students, this study aimed to answer two main research questions: 1) Does publicizing individual acts of volunteering effect future volunteering within an organization? 2) Is there any significant difference between the impact of positive recognition and negative recognition on future volunteering efforts? Through this research it was determined that both positive and negative recognition improve volunteering participation, however only certain negative recognition has a significant impact.
