Information About Volunteering

A traditional form of volunteering is very much a part of Lebanese culture.  Lebanese regularly help their relatives, friends, and neighbors without expectation of direct compensation, financial or otherwise.  This provides them with a mutual aid network in which they do not necessarily reciprocate help to the person who helped them, but have an expectation that their help to others will be reciprocated from within the network when they need help.  The Association for Volunteer Services provides information about more formal forms of volunteering with broader public organizations and institutions.  Many publications have been written about volunteering.  Some of these are available to read at the AVS Library.  This section of the website provides some basic information about the different dimensions of volunteering.
