This study examines the role and process of the voluntary organization in the alleviation of social problems. Employing a case study approach, this research was conducted during two years of participant observation with two voluntary organizations in St. John’s, Newfoundland. -- The general area of concern for this research is an analysis of the internal structure of urban voluntary associations and its implications on organizational development and growth. Included in this analysis as well, is a review of the goal selection, strategy formation and resource mobilization which accompanies the growth and decline of voluntary groups. -- Of particular emphasis in this study is the description and analysis of organizational change and variation within the volunteer sector of community life. -- Hypotheses are generated throughout the study for future verification and replication.
