What are your motivations?

Yesterday, after a talk with the EIESL team (Ethics of International Engagement and Service Learning) a friend of mine sent me this video and I think that it’s something that every person has to consider before engaging in any kind of ‘volunteering.’

The Student Involvement Showcase in Brock Hall a few days ago made me think about this too… It was funny to see even the girls in charge of the Orientations booth joke about how many people volunteered only to get a shirt that says ‘I am UBC.’

It’s kind of sad, isn’t it? What do you think?
