The study used a self-administered survey questionnaire to collect 213 data for volunteers from five non-for-profit organisations in Queensland, Australia. The proposed hypotheses were validated from analysing the data collected and the results provide a statistical-significant that POS have substantial direct and indirect impact on volunteers' intention to stay. The findings emphasise the significance of POS as a strategic tool for fostering volunteers' intention to remain volunteering, with job satisfaction and affective commitment serving as vital mediating factors.
