This chapter reviews research on the longer-term consequences of volunteering for the volunteer as a participant or member in a voluntary membership association (MA) or in a Volunteer Service Program (VSP; see Handbook Chapter 15). Some consequences are immediate, as positive or negative felt affects/emotions from an activity (see the following Chapter 53 of this Handbook). Other consequences, more commonly the focus of volunteer impact research, are longer term, over days, months, and years, as mainly reviewed in this chapter (but also reviewed partly in Chapter 53, for longer-term happiness and well-being effects).
