Course 1 chapter 4

1. Types of volunteers

Read the text and then answer the question.

"Whenever I travel abroad for volunteer work, I find out which bars are the best, in the community where I am volunteering. On the weekends I would go to the clubs and festivals with the local residents from the community. Although I came to do volunteer work, most of my time is spent having fun"

What type of volunteer am I?
I am doing voluntary work so I can build my CV. What type of volunteer am I?

What type of volunteer am I?
2. Open, honest, and interested. 

Read the quote of a volunteer and answer the question:
"I tend to judge the people in the community in which I am doing my volunteer work"

Is that part of being open, honest, and interested?
Read the quote from a project coordinator and answer the question:
"I find it difficult when the volunteers ask me to do more for the children. They want more staff and more facilities. Unfortunately, we cannot arrange this. Volunteers get angry with me, I do not like that. I would rather have them ask why this is the case, then I can explain it to them."

Are the volunteers in this example being open, honest and interested?
