Date & Time

Previous studies on the relationship between non-governmental organizations and government organizations are mainly based on the perspective of the relationship between the state and society. Through case studies, they analyze and summarize the different relationship models between the two parties, and pay more attention to the normal operation of voluntary service, but relatively lacks a dynamic perspective to show the organizational development process of volunteers. This paper starts with the love action of the volunteer groups established temporarily after the lockdown of Wuhan City, analyzes the self-construction process of non-governmental volunteer organizations, and understands the development trend of these relationship models by showing the community consciousness of voluntary service, integrating structure analysis with action analysis. It is found that the diversity and personalization of civil voluntary service can make up for the lack of legitimacy, but with its own systematization, the institutional characteristics of voluntary service will become more and more obvious, and voluntary service groups will gradually cooperate with government agencies to establish a greater community of destiny.
