Sample answer for the cue card, describe a volunteering experience that you have had:

I have known about volunteering in my schooling, my teachers taught me to participate in social campaigns as a volunteer. Moreover, I participated in many campaigns such as cleanliness, helping poor people and taking care of stray dogs.

Here, I would like to talk about a volunteering experience that I have.

Previous year, we shifted to our new home. The place and people were new for me as well as my family. One day, I stepped out for an evening walk. Furthermore, I met with my neighbours and interacted with an uncle who works for an NGO.

I came to know that it is an animal NGO and they take care of stray dogs.

Additionally, in my residential area there are many stray dogs. Uncle works as a volunteer and provides food as well as treatment to stray dogs. Moreover, I got inspired by his selfless act.

I decided to assist uncle as a volunteer. Next day, I met uncle, I told him that I want to work as a volunteer and become member of the NGO.

He was delighted after knowing about my decision. He took me along with him and registered my name as a volunteer.

I took the volunteering decision as I wanted to help others.

I know, helping others give happiness and satisfaction. Earlier, I had worked as a volunteer so I know how it feels when we help someone.

Furthermore, I took some share from my pocket money and used that to feed the stray dogs in my locality. Also, I took the injured dogs to NGO for the treatment.

However, I felt upset when I got to see injuries of dogs, which were caused due to accidents. There are many stray dogs those are hit by the vehicles on road.

{Tip: Try to conclude your topic at last}

I felt there is nothing better than helping others. Utilising the leisure time in such a good act of serving, makes me feel relaxed. It feels amazing to work as a volunteer.

In addition to this, it has been a year working as a volunteer. Currently, I am doing the same and volunteering for the same purpose. Thus, I love to work as a volunteer and will continue doing it.
