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’s simply called help, and in a protest it would be called activism.
