Despite unprecedented recent expansion of international volunteering and service (IVS), there has been relatively little research on impacts. From research it appears that outcomes for host communities, volunteers, an sending communities vary depending on individual and institutional attributes and capacity. How institutions structure and leverage individual capacity influences who participates and how they serve, and shapes the impact of volunteer action.
Margaret S. Sherraden, Benjamin Lough and Amanda Moore McBride of the University of Missouri and Washington University, have suggested a conceptual model for impact research based on existing research evidence published in English in an article titled ‘Effects of International Volunteering and Service: Individual and Institutional Predictors’, published in Voluntas: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations, published online at Springerlink on Nov 7, 2008
