Ma. Melanie Aposaga

Abstract: Volunteerism is a worldwide phenomenon that has played an increasing role in society. This study determined the volunteerism challenges and practices of youth leaders as input to a sustainable volunteerism in community development of Roxas City in terms of capability building, time management, financial management, and social support. This descriptive research utilized a researcher-made questionnaire. The 215 respondents consisted of Barangay Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Officials of the 47 barangays of Roxas City, Capiz. Results revealed that Roxas City SK Officials were moderately challenged as to financial management, capability building, time management, and social support. For the volunteerism practices, capability building, time management, and social support were practiced by the respondents, while financial management was moderately practiced. An organizational assessment on volunteerism management of the Local Government Unit could be helpful for adopting and strengthening the practices on volunteerism identified in the study.
