Volunteers are considered one of the main pillars of the special events. Motivations of volunteers have received a great attention from many organizations as they proved to be of a great value for human resources. Volunteering in special events bring different people together no matter what are their ethnics, origins, religion and economic standards. It also creates a sense of social harmony. The main issue of this research is to identify the motivations, needs and attitudes of young volunteers. Data gathered to examine these points from university students (n=500) that volunteered and those who did not volunteer in special events. The 12th version of the statistical tool (Statistical Package for Social Science) SPSS was used to execute data statistical analysis of the field study.
