What does it mean to volunteer?

Co-op or Corporation?
A cooperative differs from a corporation in that it is owned by its’ members. This shifts the responsibility and the success to the community instead of the single owner or the corporate identity. The Co-op is a business owned and operated by a group of individuals for their mutual benefit. A cooperative is defined by the International Cooperative Alliance’s Statement on the Cooperative Identity as “an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise”. A cooperative may also be defined as a business owned and controlled equally by the people who use its services or by the people who work there.
