Volunteering and Prosocial Behaviour

Roxana Maier, Andra Maier, Călin Maier


The study wants to put in relation prosocial behaviour with well-being. The study’s participants were selected from various volunteering groups, involved in student organisations in Romania and outside of it. The data regarding one’s own perception of prosocial behaviour and well-being was gathered during the pandemic’s first week and after 8 weeks, but the volunteers’ activity was tracked in the months that followed. This led to acknowledging that their activities diversified in this field and the participants’ number in their groups grew bigger. Finding a meaning based on our prosocial behaviours brings benefits in the social dynamic, diminishes the feeling of loneliness, and leads to optimising our well-being.
