Nonprofit Organizations in Mexico: Case Studies

  • María Guadalupe Serna
Chapter

Abstract

Volunteer groups were analyzed in the two previous chapters, including their different facets, their relation to individual life experience, as well as the reasons for which people participate in them. The fundamental role played by the family group was also discussed among other elements that encourage a subject to take the path of activities to help third parties. Semantic categories related to volunteer action were also examined and the volunteer’s perceptions were discussed, as well as the terms they assign to the type of activity performed. In this chapter, I will focus on exploring what happens in the organizations. Given the richness of the qualitative information gathered, it is possible to develop a framework in which volunteer group actions occur in order to achieve a complete scenario that also includes the type of organizations in which these volunteers participate.
