Abstract or Summary
  • The goal of this study was to pursue the construct of transcendence from a psychosocial, developmental perspective to predict who will volunteer and its influence on the average number of volunteer hours worked per week. The predictor variable is the self-transcendence subscale score on the Adult Self-Transcendence Inventory (ASTI) (Levenson et al., 2005). Three demographic variables (age, education, and retirement status) identified as correlates of transcendence and volunteerism, and alienation, a second ASTI construct identified were controlled to determine the effect of transcendence on the outcome variables. A literature review offers detail about transcendence, generativity, volunteerism, and baby boomers. The method, results, and discussion sections provide detailed insight into the study.
