A voluntary work becomes a phenomenon of a modern society. More and more individuals are deciding for a voluntary work, especially young people (high school pupils and students) and elderly. Other generation are rarely deciding for this step. With voluntary work young people are coming across new fields and fresh spheres, becoming experiences and non-formal education. Elderly want to carry their knowledge and experienes to young generation. Altruism is a main motive for volunteers, also unselfishnes and humanity. Volunteers are helping society and individuals with less opportunities and luck. All the effort and spare time are returning by satisfaction and gratitude.
