Abstract

This paper is part empirical and part theoretical. It argues that for volunteerism to be a permanent feature in the society there must be a public policy that encourages, motivates and appreciates the value ofvolunteerism, and that it should be consciously acknowledged in the community. To be able to create this sense, a new developmental view on the contributive roles of the ageing population must be in place in the policy intervention. Malaysia, a rapidly industrializing country in the Asian region, must recognize the fact that a great number ofwilling and committed retirees could be tapped as potential volunteer workers for the continuing development of the broader community.
