Join MAVA and Dr. Mai Moua to understand how their research on Volunteerism in Immigrant Communities can strengthen your volunteer program!
MAVA and Dr. Mai Moua of Leadership Paradigms embarked on a two year study to learn about volunteerism practices in Somali, Hmong and Latino communities. Relying on focus groups, interviews, surveys and literature, the research found critical dynamics at play in understanding:
· What motivates volunteers from immigrant communities to volunteer?
· What type of relationship works best for these volunteers?
· What best practices should nonprofits focus on when working with this population?
