IssueLab is an organization that aims to archive, distribute, and promote research conducted by the non-profit sector. This research can be used by students, activists, organizations, and anyone else interested in various non-profit-related issues.
Every month they have a CloseUp, which focuses on a specific issue. This month’s CloseUp is on volunteerism, and for this topic they have various resources such as:
- Government reports and statistics
- Foundation studies
- Opinion pieces
- Practice advice
and much more.
They also have a CloseUp on youth media which is equally as informative.
IssueLab is relatively new, but they’re already a great resource for information and are worth a visit. Keep an eye for future CloseUps and research pieces on various other issues.
Thanks to Vanessa Beck for the heads-up!
