They are ready to give of themselves unselfishly and quietly.

When I was in high school, I volunteered at my local nursing home doing crafts and singing songs and playing bingo with the residents. Then when I got older I volunteered for my local ambulance service. I was a dispatcher, an assistant and an EMT(emergency medical technician). It didn't pay any money but it was very rewarding.

I volunteered in a nursing home for about 6years after my mother passed away, I used to keep company, read or whatever to the ones that never had visitors, is very rewarding and you are very appreciated by these lovely people.

The volunteer experience will bring you some training in the field,and it can help you get what you want.such training is often interesting to an employer when you find a job later.

maybe my volunteer service is not really useful for needy people or helping the community, but...i volunteered at an annual film festival. i did different jobs...putting up posters, distributing pamphlets about the movies, collecting clippings from newspapers, greeting visitors during our parties.... actually it was one of my favorite jobs :) really fun!
