Abstract:

In modern times, volunteering has become an important element of all societies. The famous United Nations declaration "We, the people, have the power to change the world" has turned into concrete actions of volunteers globally. Volunteering is a fundamental component of society, enlivening the noblest values of humanity, values such as peace, freedom or security. Volunteering existed before the state and the economy and can generate social capital. Voluntary activities are based on the principle of solidarity. This article has as main objective the revision of the specialized literature in the field of volunteering in order to understand the sources of the volunteer action and what characterizes it.
