AbstractThis study explored what motivates a person volunteer, how they feel when doing so, and how we can encourage more people to volunteer to incentivize them to do so to benefit the community and themselves. People completed a questionnaire to understand what motivated people to volunteer. The number of responses were limited but gave enough information to establish trends. Through the answers from the questionnaire, it was determined that people who volunteer feel better afterwards and are likely influenced by seeing or having a friend do it. These findings are consistent with other studies. Having people share their experiences with friends may help increase rates of volunteerism.
