Philosophy and Practice of volunteerism/community service *Meaning of volunteerism *History *Volunteerism in tertiary education Volunteerism Volunteerism is the willingness of people to work on behalf of others without the expectation of pay or other tangible gain.

The importance of volunteering is to give you the opportunity to experience working with others because if you have never been in a working environment you are at a severe disadvantage to those that have. The good thing about public sector volunteering is that if you can do well you might be considered for a post if one turns up.
Although community service has its ups and downs, it is not justifiable to use community service to consider one’s employment in most cases. Community service is meant to voluntary work done out of the kindness of one’s heart to honestly give back to society by helping those in need. Although there is a need for more emphasis to be placed on the idea of service learning, there is should be not be emphasis on community service beyond it being a moral obligation. By making job interviews consider community service, there would be an excessive amount of emphasis on it as it would force all employees to be forced to do community service. The issue is that by placing such an emphasis would compel people to do community service but not out of the goodness of their heart, merely because they have no other choice if they wish to get employed in the tertiary institution.

In group this helps to lift group member’s self-esteem and develop a more adaptive coping style and interpersonal skills within the group. Instillation of hope In my own experience this was a key factor of how I managed to turn my life around. The first hand experience though was more in a NA share where the person shared where they had been and how they had come out of the other end.
