Volunteer are an important resource for a school. Some parents of students would come to school and work as volunteers during the period their children enroll in the school, and stop the service after their children graduate. However, some volunteers choose to continue even their children were no longer in the school. This study hopes to know their motivation for participation from the viewpoint of serious leisure.
Qualitative research method was adopted and in-deep interviews were carried out. Six members in the Guang-Hua Elementary School Parent Volunteer Chorus with 3-year to 18-year volunteer experience were interviewed. The Results show that:
1. Most volunteers had volunteer experience before they provide similar service to Guang-Hua Elementary School. The reason they like to continue playing the role as volunteers was not only being able to help others but also being able to bring something positive to themselves.
2. Members of Parent Volunteer Chorus can get some personal leisure benefits, such as self-enrichment, self-realization, self-expression, self-image enhancement, self-satisfaction, self-construction, and overcoming obstacle and changing into positive force.
3. Members of Parent Volunteer Chorus can get positive social leisure value and great meaning in terms of social interaction, team achievement, and group identity.
