Abstract

There has been little theoretical or empirical study regarding the factors that promote or thwart international service among African American adults. A review of the extant research on international volunteerism highlights factors that may facilitate or inhibit international service among African Americans. Religion can play a role in promoting African American volunteerism generally, and international service specifically. Building on existing research and theory, a conceptual model can be sketched that accounts for the complex ways in which intrapersonal, interpersonal, contextual, sociopolitical, and religious factors inform international service among African Americans.
