Several definitions are trying to identify the meaning of "volunteering". In general we can say that the volunteering is a practise of people working for a benefit of other persons or a concrete reason without any salary for their time and servises. The volunteering is also a form of nonformal and informal education. Although you do not get any matherial reward you could acquire much more than you think. A smile on a child face, a good feeling from renovation of an old farm, a reconstruction of a castle or new friendships and life experiences could be an award for you. The resulsts of the voluntary work will be worth the effort and it has got a big meaning for the whole society.
