Effects of Int’l Volunteering on Returned Volunteers

As international volunteering continues to grow, stakeholders frequently ask about the outcomes of service on volunteers, organizations, and host communities. To assess these outcomes, the Center for Social Development (CSD) at Washington University in St. Louis initiated a major research effort to study and inform the knowledge base on international service worldwide.

The Center recently released a research report on the effects of international volunteering on returned volunteers, which is the first in a series of reports on international volunteering. These findings suggest that international volunteering has the potential to positively affect volunteers and host organizations across various program models. The full report can be downloaded from the CSD website: http://csd.wustl.edu/CivicEngagementService/Pages/IntalServPubs.aspx
