  1. Volunteering

    Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity produces a feeling of self-worth and respect; however, there is no financial gain. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, socialization, and fun. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster.

Examples of volunteering in a Sentence

  3. Joe Biden:

    Our journey as a family — yes, including my own difficulties with my marriage — have made us unbreakable. It isn't, of course, that we don't suffer. We do. The point is that we don't give up, no matter how much we suffer, so, you ask me, whether my father might not run for President because of reports about me in the news. What you fail to realize, in asking such a question, is that my father has always been proud of me — whether when I was volunteering for the Jesuits, or working as a lawyer. And he remains proud of me today. He loves me. And he loves the American people far too much to let any form of adversity stand in the way of service.

  4. Bob Baer:

  5. Stephanie Rendon:

    Their tech-savvy and enthusiasm for volunteering digitally has helped our teams deliver aid around the globe.
