- They may want to “give back” something to society from their “emotional” or from their “material” surplus.
- They may want to play an active role in making a social change in their society that faces a variety of social and financial difficulties.
- They may want to gain some professional experience (and have a certificate for their voluntary work which may be useful for future employment)
- They may want to find a creative way to spend their time e.t.c.
Regardless of the reason why someone may want to participate in voluntary actions, volunteering is beyond a person’s attempt to achieve a goal. Volunteering, as a type of social behaviour, can create concrete bonds of trust and of social cohesion, and contributes both to an individual’s personal development and to a sense of a mutual identity and common future. Taking action as a volunteer can be the vehicle through which people unite their efforts for the achievement of a common goal and this is a common characteristic in any society. As a result, volunteering can have a radical effect on the lives of many different people in a national and global level.
