The purpose of this paper is to discussed about the motivational strategy used inside a non-governmental organization where members are simple volunteers, by comparison with a firm, where employees receive salaries. For confidentiality reasons, the names of the two organizations and certain data were changed. After collecting and studying the data it has been concluded that the manager of the firm has a better motivational planthan the president of the non-governmental organization and that he knows better his staff and their needs and wants. But on the other hand, the most motivated members are the volunteers because they do not need money or the safety of the working place to make them want to do their job. They just need to be listened to, to have the possibility to gain more skills and also make the best out of the ones they already have. They are also more otivated just by the fact that inside the organization there is a strong organizational culture that makes them relate to Pro Students and helps its members become a community of practice.
