Assunto: [CITASA] research on volunteering?

I am hoping to start a new research project on using social media to
encourage volunteering. 
I am guessing there's a big literature on why people get involved in
volunteer work, what sustains participation over time, and why they drop
Are there classic papers in this area I should read?

Thanks for your help!
