Vancouver 2010: The volunteer effect

Vancouver 2010: The volunteer effect: "ver wondered how an Olympic Games affects volunteerism in the host city after the fact? Actually, not many people have. But a team of researchers from Australia and the UK have set their sights on Vancouver to put together one of the first comprehensive surveys on the subject.

Prior to the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Dr. Tracey Dickson, associate professor, Centre for Tourism Research with the University of Canberra, and colleagues Dr. Angela Benson (University of Brighton), Dr. Deborah Edwards and Associate Professor Simon Darcy (University of Technology, Sydney) and Professor Deborah Blackman (University of Canberra), conducted a survey to find out how Vancouverites felt about volunteering for the games."
