Volunteering for a Better South Africa: Sara Compion
Noticing a lack of literature on volunteerism in South Africa, Sociology graduate student Sara Compion decided to focus her studies on home. Within her research, Compion began investigating connections between volunteering and democratization while also exploring why many South Africans volunteer, titling her dissertation “Volunteering and democratization in Africa: How individual traits and national contexts inform non-political volunteering.” In this podcast, Sara Compion discusses her research, interest in volunteerism, and about receiving the National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement Grant.
