The New Alchemy Part 1: How volunteering turns donations of time and talent into human gold
This is our second major report on volunteering. We published The 21st Century Volunteer in 2005 and it was our most popular free report for many years. But over time, many things in the world of volunteering, charities and the wider economic, social and political climate have changed.
This new report is being released in seven parts:
Part 1 – The political and social landscape for volunteering
Part 2 – Volunteering trends over the last decade
Part 3 – Harnessing volunteer motivations
Part 4 – The changing mechanics of volunteering
Part 5 – Engaging the young, the old and the family to volunteer
Part 6 – How do we manage the 21st Century Volunteer?
Part 7 – Conclusions and recommendations
This is Part 1.
