Become a Volunteer
Becoming a volunteer is the willingness of any person to contribute his or her time and spirit to serve the betterment of society without any material reward.
Volunteerism is based on the individual’s values toward people and society, which are derived from the experience of interacting with people and society. Voluntarism is the spirit of an individual who voluntarily participates in service for the betterment and development of society without regard to monetary or material rewards. Therefore, volunteerism is a response to an individual’s positive attitude towards life.
Direct service means that volunteers provide services to the clients personally; indirect service means that volunteers provide services to the relevant service organizations or groups to help them develop their existing services.
