Serving Country and Community book by Peter Frumkin and Joann Jastrzab now available

What are the long-term effects of volunteerism for individuals and communities?  A new book, Serving Country and Community: Who Benefits from National Service (2010, Harvard University Press), by fellow ARNOVAn Peter Frumkin and Joann Jastrzab examines what happens to volunteers who served in government-sponsored programs, including VISTA.  As part of the team that interviewed former participants of these programs, I listened to volunteers share moving stories about their experiences.   Now, you can read the results of this study about the impact of these programs, decades after their volunteers’ involvement.
