Voluntarism and National Sports Organisations (Part II)

St Vincent and the Grenadines is unique in many ways. It is a product of the particular nuances of its historical experiences. The approaches taken to voluntarism in sport must take the culture of the society into consideration. Whatever about the rapid pace of development in the realm of organisational management at the global level, the level of development of St Vincent and the Grenadines and of its people must guide the approaches adopted to voluntarism in sport in the future.
There must be an overwhelming sensitivity to the country’s pace of development and of its capacity to move forward in tandem with global trends in organisational management.
Nonethelss it is also particularly important that national sporting organisations seek out opportunities for volunteers to develop themselves in identified preferential areas of involvement.
Finally, sporting organisations must constantly and consistently show genuine appreciation for those who give of their time, energies and generally, of themselves in the service of sport.
