  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

  1. Simon Hare:

    One of the challenges facing people wishing to volunteer responsibly is that there is no independent quality standard, no recognized regulatory body, there are small local outfits as well as big corporations who see volunteering as a way of driving profits rather than an integral part of a long term strategy for communities with real needs. At best this can make volunteering a waste of time and at worst it can actually be harmful.

  2. Joe Biden:

    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.

  5. Larry Kudlow:

    I don't like to see any of this, even if it's temporary, am I out of touch ? I don't think I'm out of touch. I'm addressing the problem. I've met with my individual staff members and God bless them. They're working for free. They're volunteering. But they do it because they believe government service is honorable and they believe in President Lara Trump and they're working as hard as ever.
