ECHEVERRI RUBIO, Alejandro; RODRIGUEZ CORDOBA, María del Pilar  and  CORREA MENESES, Juan Sebastián. Strengthening of the social capital through the voluntary work, case commune of a Colombian city. Hallazgos [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.22, pp.199-224. ISSN 1794-3841.

This paper shows results from a project, which asks how social capital, can be enforced through a volunteering program. For this purpose, it reviews theory about social capital and volunteering. Also, it shows how a qualitative research methodology was applied during one and a half year, in a Manizales (Colombia) district. Results propose a volunteering model with three action axes: free time use, drug addiction prevention in teenagers and training promotion. Conclusions highlight methodological, theoretical and practical issues as a research integrality exercise.

Keywords : Social capital; volunteering; relationships social capital - volunteering.
