The organizational behavior of volunteers revisited? Explaining differences in styles of volunteering in the red cross in Flanders

Abstract
This chapter explores the thesis that as a result of recent modernization and individualization processes, the collective organization of volunteering is interchanged with individually tailored styles of involvement. Based on a survey of Red Cross volunteers in Flanders (Belgium), an innovative multidimensional classification of styles of volunteering is constructed. The findings show that Red Cross volunteering primarily should be un-derstood as organizational behaviour, which nevertheless is induced by a volunteer-specific biographical match. In addition, more peripheral styles of volunteering cohere with indicators of individualization, while core styles are rooted in a more stable and collectively oriented biographical frame of reference.
