  • INDIVIDUALISM Hofstede (1980) – focus on rights above duties, concern for oneself and immediate family Waterman (1984) – focus on personal responsibility and freedom of choice Schwartz (1990) – consist of narrow primary groups with specific obligations
  • Self Determination Theory (SDT) – seek challenges and strive for excellence (Dece, 2002) Theories On Collectivism Social Identity ( Hogg and Abrams) - a person’s knowledge that he or she belongs to a social category or group” Identity Theory ( Burke and Tully) - categorization of the self as an occupant of a role, and the incorporation into the self, and the meanings and expectations associated with that role and its performance Role Identity – carrying out behavior to perform the expectations
  • Oyserman (2a002) – groups bind and mutually obligate individuals Schwartz (1990) – characterized by diffuse and mutual obligations and expectations based on ascribed statuses Triandis (1995) – oriented towards in – groups and away from the out-groups
  • Functional Approach ( Gil and Synyder) – people are purposeful, planful and goal-directed. Theory of Altruism ( Bar-Tal, Karylowski) – altruistic behavior must benefit another person, must be performed voluntarily, must be performed intentionally. Escape Theory ( Baumeister) - individuals indulge in activities that may help them got away from their lives or characters with which they are not happy.
  • Social Impact Theory ( Latane et al.)- states that the likelihood that a person will respond to social influence will increase with Situated Learning Theory ( Lave and Wenger)- learning is embedded within the activity, context and culture Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs - people need to engage themselves to gain recognition and have an activity that give the person a sense of contribution

  • 1. Since findings suggest that Individualistic orientations are good predictors for volunteering in the future, this study recommends that although volunteering implies free service, there should be some kind of incentives for the volunteers such as proper recognition For Horizontal Individualists – Self – reliance is as much needed source for those who want to volunteer since volunteerism requires a great amount of resolve and effort. For Vertical Collectivists – achievement is a greater motivator for most people, institutions, and organizations that foster volunteerism should be able to utilize rewards
  • 2. Collectivism has been found to be an important aspect of effective volunteers. This study suggests that institutions and organizations as well as government units that ADVOCATE VOLUNTEERISM should conduct trainings that could enhance these collective tendencies 3. Motivational Functions This study found out that social pressures are important motivation for volunteers. This study suggests that a call for volunteerism through seminars and trainings are needed to foster a life long commitment to service and build awareness of civic responsibility.
  • Since it was found out that values is a very important motivator but was given less importance by the volunteers, it is recommended that volunteering organizations conduct seminars and trainings about the native of volunteerism and how it is beneficial to humanity. Although understanding function is regarded as only somewhat important it is regarded as second most important motivator across literatures about volunteer motivation. Volunteering organizations should also help out those who are interested in volunteering by spreading information on how to volunteer
  • The protective function is one of those motivations which is not very much explored. This study suggest to include debriefing seminar towards volunteer every after they finish a mission. This is to evaluate whether volunteering has indeed helped them or how it is worsened whatever negative feelings they have. Prepared by: Rufino Rego G.
