In 2022 and 2023, Corporate Volunteerism Council - Twin Cities members, volunteer engagement leaders, and individuals volunteering in Minnesota were invited to participate in a survey on the psychology of volunteering. This survey was conducted by Joshua Braverman, Ph.D. for his doctoral dissertation. 

Join us on March 14, 2024, from 12:00-1:00pm to learn findings from the survey.   

Study One examines the characteristics of skills-based volunteers and how they differ from Non-skills-based volunteers. In Studies Two and Three, Braverman collected original data to understand whether considering the skills-oriented nature of volunteerism may lead to divergence from the findings from the existing psychology of volunteering, specifically whether the psychological characteristics known to predict volunteerism extend to skills-based volunteerism.

This event will be held via Zoom. Please register prior to the event and keep your confirmation email as it will include the zoom link to join the meeting.

A reminder email containing the zoom link will be sent 24 prior to the event as well.
