Volunteerism Among Filipino Americans – Point Loma I C
August 2, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
8:30 am – 10:00 am Point Loma I C
Volunteerism is a multi-faceted phenomenon. Surprisingly, there is very little research on volunteerism among Filipino Americans. With the latest natural calamities in the Philippines, it has become apparent that we need to be aware of the best practices in social philanthropy, and this requires an honest examination of our motivations and behaviors. This presentation will provide a review of volunteerism in Asia and the Philippines. Using conceptual frameworks and anecdotal information, the panel/roundtable will address the following issues: motivations for volunteerism by Filipino Americans, the areas in which they volunteer, and forms of volunteerism. Hopefully this presentation will provide information that will help Filipino Americans individuals and groups to engage in more efficient and effective voluntary initiatives.
Presenters: Angeles Caradang, Emraida Kiram, Fran Alayu Womack
