Organization It should be borne in mind some principles that volunteer become a source of personal growth while you collaborate with people in dramatic situations. Worth having these thoughts as: come and enjoy helping others. But remember that in volunteering, the attention to detail, the excellence in quality are inexcusable demands because it applies the principle of the well-made play. Make sure that you have with you when it comes to collaborate in the development, design, execution and evaluation of projects. Remember that without service training can be as sterile as the action without the proper training. Improvisation, the routine, the lack of seriousness and commitments can do irreparable harm. If you're not happy with the project to which you are assigned, speaking with officials and you know find the way that you feel more useful in another activity. But beware of the temptation to change service to train you better: the marginalized and the beneficiaries of our service may never be object or instrument for any purpose, by lofty as it is, because they are an end in themselves and subject of the relationship that is established. Be volunteer must produce mutual benefits for all those who are involved in this. If you cannot continue with your commitment, put it to the head of the project, not him leave without more. You have no right to create false expectations if you will not be able to meet them. You don't need to make extraordinary expenses. If the project to which you are assigned requires travel expenses, for example, you must go to the headquarters of the Organization to be reimbursed. But don't forget that the projects require financial means: yours also according to your possibilities. It is sophistry to think with your personal help already do quite. Ask yourself if you could not help more encouraging other people to cooperate with the organization.

Fundamental Attitude For an authentic social volunteering, are accurate training and learning in the sensitivity, respect and acceptance of each other as it is, without trying to change it. We are not going to teach anything or to change anyone, but to help make it anyone from their own reality in the maturation of their identity. Those who live on site we know that for the proper formation of a volunteer, to be able to send resources, studies, correspondence, control projects, money is needed. And no matter the age or health that has that moved to so much pain and injustice so that you can not contribute regularly a contribution, more so when it becomes a full partner within the organization. In our country, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are being trained as social volunteers and organizations that prepare them need financial means to do so. Complain, criticize and not to cooperate is not coherent. Within the fundamental attitude of the volunteer, we accept the term cure from its most authentic meaning: take care, that it brings comfort, accompany, sympathize, empathize, sympathize, share, live-with. Hence buddy-copain: which shared the bread. It is known to each other not only as otherness, but as reciprocity which exceeds the tolerance that based on a posture of possession of the truth, something that nobody can have on property. This attitude is an indispensable asset to both reductionism, fanaticism, fundamentalism, fake spiritualism, anthropocentrism, with an alienating perfectionism that has a lot of Cathar, Calvinist and pelagiano. Nobody is more than anyone. It is therefore, be consistent and adapt ourselves to the reality. Only a fool who does not know, would qualify this attitude as syncretism, relativism, materialism or Pantheism.
