The first chapter considers the main reasons for the increased volunteering in Russia in the early 1990s; The second chapter summarizes the international conceptual and organizational approaches that influenced the development of volunteering institutions. Novelty of the paper are as follows: a set of knowledge about volunteering is formed - a new historical phenomenon that is only beginning to be comprehended of as a subject of historical research; volunteerism / volunteer movement is allocated to an independent line of scientific research (outside the framework of charity); the problems of identifying key concepts in the field of volunteering are investigated; the author's approach to the formation of a single language (conceptual apparatus) for use in the professional and scientific community is proposed.
