Abstract:

This research is a qualitative research with a phenomenological approach that aims to determine the volunteering process and the meaning of volunteer in the Sub-district Social Welfare Worker (TKSK) at the Dosaraso Halfway House Kebumen Regency, Central Jave Province of Indonesia. There were four participants in this study who were selected purposively. The TKSK volunteering process at Dosaraso Halfway House was based on four reasons, which are personal values, spiritual values, concerns, and carrying out tasks.

After the volunteering process experienced by the TKSK at the Dosaraso Halfway House, four meanings of volunteer were found: contribution, integrity, self-actualization and spiritual belief.
