What is volunteerism?
• Definitions:
– one who enters into or offers himself for any service of his
own free will
– individuals who reach out beyond the confines of their paid
employment and of their normal responsibilities to contribute
time and service to a not-for-profit cause in the belief that
their activity is beneficial to others as well as satisfying to
themselves
– volunteerism is any activity that is relatively uncoerced,
intended to help, conducted without primary or immediate
thought of financial gain, and is work, not play
