- Participating in Volunteer Activities and Student Learning : Through the Analysis of Students Survey
Search this article
The purpose of this article is to investigate how students develop through participating in volunteer activities. To determine the effect of volunteer activities on learning, we administered The Career Development Survey 2010 in which 2,362 students (1,036 male and 1,326 female) from all over Japan participated. In the first analysis, we classified the participants into four groups from the viewpoint of whether or not they had participated in volunteer activities before or after entering college. In second analysis we classified students into three groups based on how they participated in those activities. In both analyses, I examined how each group of students feels about campus life, daily satisfaction, acquisition of knowledge and skills, communities of practice and "learning bridging", and future orientation. The results show that students who have participated in volunteer activities before and/or after entering college are engaged in well-balanced activities, and scored significantly higher than the other groups regarding daily satisfaction, out-of-class study, and acquisition of knowledge and skills. Learning through participation in volunteer activities enables deeper acquisition of knowledge and greater development of future orientation. For higher education, it is important that students are able to access the opportunities of broad and enriching service-learning.
