  7. Read the above. (Id like to volunteer for someone I know is really helping the world. For example, I volunteered for the Red Cross, but they never did anything and that was annoying.)

  8. The only dislike that I had about my other volunteer experiences was that I was unable to do more volunteer work, and was unable to acquire transportation. Therefore, I feel virtual volunteering will help me get around this.

  20. Sometimes the things I did seemed meaningless, and I didn't like it when I spent three-hour shifts doing homework instead of volunteer work.

  21. Being from a small time, it is difficult to find a volunteer opportunity that is sustainable for longer periods of time. Many of the "bigger" events are far away and hard to get transportation to.

  22. Meetings 3x's a week that conflict with my personal life.

  41. In all my time spent volunteering, I really can say there was nothing I disliked about my experiences.

  42. The only thing I can think of that I wasn't too thrilled about was when I "worked" with the schizophrenic lady. I was not pleased with having to go into the dark building --- a state facility --- and have to go through several locked and barred doors to get to the room to meet her in. This was one reason why I didn't continue after my school project committment was over.
