In recent years, it has become apparent that there is an increase in young volunteer from the wealthy region that decides to do unpaid work in developing countries. This essay will discuss principal reasons for this social phenomenon as well as reveal the side that benefits more.
First of all, although there are several reasons associated with this phenomenon, the most significant of which is the need of young people to possess the competitive background in order to increase job security. Therefore, young people feel the necessity for having voluntary certification so as to surpass other competitors. For example, an employer would desire to recruit a candidate who graduated with high score as well as had volunteering experience than a person who only possesses great score-band. In addition, another reason worth mentioning is that the procedure for oversea volunteer becomes simpler. Not only are there more volunteer abroad organization and project, many governments had shown the efforts to simplify the administrative formalities, such as visa procedure.
Secondly, although unpaid job is beneficial for both the volunteers and the poor regions, I am convinced that the former receive more profit than the later. Their unpaid work is a mere short-term solution for the community because of the restriction of time and budget. Accordingly, these projects rarely can make a significant change in the natives’ lives. On the contrary, these volunteer projects are considered as a great opportunity for the young people to build skills and experiences, to gain confidence, to make new friends and contacts as well as to identify more accurately their strengths, their drawbacks and their desires. Hence, they could become a new, better citizen and more competitive candidate for the job market.
In conclusion, the requirement of more competitive profile and the simplification of procedure are the two main reasons for this phenomenon. Although the volunteers benefit more from the unpaid works, it has long been my belief that the government should continue to help these projects.
