The purpose of this research was not only to investigate the relationship among organizational commitment, job burnout and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) but also to investigate the mediating role of organizational commitment between the relationship of job burnout and OCB. Data were gathered from two hundred and eighty one teachers (N = 281) working in public sector colleges in Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Panjab, and Balochestan provinces of Pakistan. The results revealed a significant negative relationship between job burnout and OCB (r = - 0.240) and job burnout and organizational commitment (r = - 0.181). The results also revealed a positive relationship between organizational commitment and OCB (r = 0.229). Structure equation modeling revealed that organizational commitment partially mediated the relationship of job burnout and OCB.
