Every month we offer free access to one selected article from our Archives for non-subscribers to sample the journal. (Subscribers can continuously access all past articles.)

From the Archives

Our Archives contain 20 years of articles, organized by over 100 subjects, individual authors, specific countries, journal sections, and issue dates. This unparalleled volunteer management archival collection contains nearly 650 stories, dating back to October 2000.

In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic now impacting the world, we start this quarter's Archives recommendations with a link to a very current list of resources, “Supporting Volunteer Efforts During Coronavirus.” This comprehensive Energize resource, compiled by Betsy McFarland, includes: public health resources; resources from volunteer centers and associations; news articles and commentary about volunteering during the crisis; examples of how organizations are responding to COVID-19, and many more resources to help Leaders of Volunteers deal with this quickly evolving situation.

We also draw your attention to stories from our Archives that deal with volunteering during disasters and uncertain times. Due to the nature of COVID-19 and the call for social-distancing, these situations do not necessary reflect volunteering situations for the pandemic. But they all offer stories of determination and resilience.
