Volunteering is a non paid collaboration with a social good cause. During your time volunteering you will develp new skills, they are called soft skills. For instance, leading skills or communication skills. It is also a possitive way to gain confidence on yourself and use your talents for improving the society. The reason because many people decide every year to volunteer locally or internationally, is the rewarding feeling of it.
