The volunteers and the non-profit organization - by Dominique Thierry[Reading report] by Yoann Kassi-Vivier

2012-12-01

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2012. Yoann Kassi-Vivier also deeply devotes himself to the third sector and social entrepreneurs. As a student, he created the Fight Club HEC, that gives the opportunity to 70 students every year to train in combat sports. Since January 2011, he is at the head of the association Pro Bono Lab, that he created. The association is specialized in sharing the competences of volunteers and companies, so as to sustain and support the development of associations of general interest and social utility

The number of volunteers working for associations is growing by 3 to 4% every year. However, non-profit organizations often claim that they face difficulties to attract and retain enough volunteers and skills to meet their growing and very precise needs. If volunteering is not currently in the middle of a crisis, it has definitely changed. Young people, employees, unemployed people, new retirees… There are not one but several types of volunteers and their motivations and constraints should be heard. Dominique Thierry questions volunteers management practices in the non-profit sector and suggests ways to enhance volunteer recruitment, integration, development, management and recognition.
