Value orientation of volunteers and a representative sample of the Czech population
Languages of publication
Exploring the value orientation may contribute to an understanding of why certain people participate in volunteer work whereas others do not. The aim of this paper is to describe the value orientation of Czech volunteers and explore if and how it differs from a representative sample of general Czech population. A value orientation was measured by Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ). The results of this empirical study showed that: (1) the most preferred value types among volunteers are self-direction, benevolence, and universalism; and (2) the higher-order value types preferred by volunteers significantly differ from the representative sample of general Czech population.
