Abstract

Third sector organisations depend heavily on volunteers for their operations and very existence. Of these organisations, non-profit, community-based sport organisations traditionally rely on a committed volunteer workforce. Significant social and policy changes are, however, influencing volunteers' attitudes and behaviour. As these changes continue to unfold, it becomes critical to understand and foster volunteer commitment to their organisations. This paper examines commitment and its specific significance to such a volunteer labor force.
