What was your volunteer experience? The good and the bad.

I am doing some researching on the problems within out volunteer systems. I am looking for varying answers, it may be something personal or a large organization. What works and what does not work?

  • Apr 29 2013: I did some interesting work looking at sources of funding for a charity, and whilst it was directed it was interesting. As soon as that task was completed, I stopped volunteering with them as there were no tasks on which to work.

    So, interesting and directed work is good. Just saying 'do what you can' doesn't work, maybe it does in other environments such as travel/volunteering.
