Do you want to volunteer?
“A person who, motivated by the values of participation and solidarity, donates his time, work and talent, in a spontaneous and unpaid way, to causes of social and community interest”.
“A human person, performed humanely, prepared technically, in constant recycling, at the service of the common good, in a work organized in team and with defined tasks.”
Why I want to volunteer?
What I hope to give and receive by volunteering?
How much time do I have?
What level of responsibility am I willing to take?
Being a volunteer is a way of exercising citizenship by participating actively and organized in society.
The volunteer is a complementary element in a team: the organizations must have remunerated human resources to accomplish the ends they are proposing, and the Volunteer should not replace jobs.
The volunteer is always an element of complementarity.
Once the institution is selected to volunteer to work, find out what they have to offer: consider other assumptions beyond what you initially had;
Find out what the overall project of the institution and the framework of its collaboration in it.
