people volunteer at church, school or community for many reasons: mostly because they want to help and be involved, but there are other reasons, too.
In some areas, like school and church, there's a significant social pressure to volunteer, it's frowned upon not to do it. So some people do it for that reason - just to keep or gain a good reputation. Some schools require their student's parents to volunteer a certain amount of hours or to pay additional tuition.
Other people volunteer to meet new people, like after relocating from another city.
People volunteer, because they feel the obligation to do it, or the passion.
Others again volunteer to fill a void in their lifes.
There are many reasons to volunteer, and many ways to do so.
People here look strange at you, if you don't volunteer in some way.
Volunteering is fun. You can help others and meet new interesting people at the same time.
