A Volunteer is someone who chooses to act of their own free will in recognition of a need, with an attitude of social responsibility and without concern for monetary profit. Not everything done by volunteers is labelled as volunteering. In a school, it might be called community service, community involvement or an internship. In professional society, it may be referred to as pro bono. In the streets, it is called neighbourliness or civic engagement. At church, it is referred to as lay ministry. In a group of peers, it may be self-help and in a protest, it would be called activism.
Would you like to get involved to provide a needed service, solve a problem, advance a worthy cause, or you are looking for personal development? Perhaps you would like to make contacts, learn skills, gain work experience, build self-esteem, or find a paying job?
