Summary or Abstract : This research identified the self-reported transformational components of volunteerism in a group of 14 exemplars between the ages of 27 and 74. Psychology, which often focuses on growth-provoking endeavors, is sorely lacking in its recognition of volunteerism and instead focuses on more introspective endeavors, or measurable behaviors, that may in some cases lead to self-absorption instead of transformation. Informed by transpersonal psychology and narrative techniques and using qualitative and quantitative thematic analysis with the Volunteer Functions Inventory (VFI), the NEO Five-Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI), and the Adult Self-Transcendence Inventory (ASTI) self-report questionnaires and interviews, 22 service-oriented people were identified. From those 22 participants, 14 exemplars were interviewed on their impressions of the impact volunteerism has had on their life. The research identified themes, commonalities, and differences among the 14 individuals as well as compared these impressions to previous results on the 3 self-report measures. Participants were divided into 2 groups that were selected from the original 22, which consisted of the 7 who scored highest on self-transcendence and the 7 who scored the lowest on self-transcendence on the ASTI. These two groups were compared between subjects as well as to previous measure findings to determine whether differences could be found in exemplary populations of volunteers. Among subjects, those exemplars scoring higher on self-transcendence were more likely to identify as spiritual and those exemplars scoring lower were more likely to identify as religious. All participants identified as being spiritual or religious though religion and spirituality are not mutually exclusive. In addition, all of the participants identified the service in their life as being life changing and part of their identity. All participants believed their volunteerism to have been transformational. The resulting themes and findings are presented in the results section of this dissertation and are applied to personal transformation as well as being informed by transpersonal psychology and the social sciences..
