Abstract: This research aimed to discover why people became volunteers, what factors led them to staying involved in volunteer organisations, and what contributed to them leaving those organisations. A qualitative methodology was used to explore the lived experiences of volunteers as they participated in the various activities of an organisation. The research delivered an intuitive Join-Stay-Leave Model that can help organisations to determine what they should focus on in each of the stages of volunteering, so as to maximise the outcomes and the effectiveness of the partnership between the organisation and its volunteers.
