Level of the modern society development and speed of its social changes lead to situations, when the person has significant difficulties with adaptation in the new environment. In this situation the help rendered by the third-party person allows to avoid a stressful situation. For this purpose in modern society the institute of volunteering has been created. The purpose of our research is definition of ways of training of volunteers and definition of it effectiveness, as far as work of the prepared volunteer is more useful to society. Also we studied influence of such training on personal development of the volunteer in comparison with participants of volunteer projects, who volunteer only with minimum training - explanation of duties.
At the same time, in a research relies on an idea that at decision-making in difficult situations which the volunteer may face has to be always a humanistic beginning. This is based on the idea of an assistance and support to people, whose need is placed. At the same time authors consider volunteering as a way of multicultural socialization, thereby allowing participants – to find necessary social experience. This in turn promotes disclosure of both the interests of volunteers, and their individual and personal features.
This research is devoted to study of how special training of volunteers allows to carry out this role better. Students of two higher education institutions of the city of Kazan who took active part in the World Cup in water sports in 2017 and in the FIFA World Cup in 2018 participated in a research, the experimental group in which additional trainings according to such programs as "communication psychology", "features of cultures and cultural diversity of the world" were provided, as well as "updating of knowledge of foreign languages", "fundamentals of etiquette of business communication" has made 36 students. Control group – students who for one reason or another haven't wanted to participate in programs of profound training - 35 people, students of the same higher education institutions. Age category of participants (both groups) 22-24 years.
The task of research group was to define at 1st – quality of work of volunteers, and 2nd -influence of work of volunteers on personal growth.
However results of a research have allowed to define that essential increase in level of patriotism at volunteers of experimental group which we connect with more positive attitude towards them from people to whom they helped was effect of such activity which wasn't put in an algorithm of training and in general carrying out a research.
