Volunteering videos

The world of the volunteering video is a niche one. How many of you spend your evenings in front of the telly watching, say, the Community Channel for example?

Videos exploring the value of volunteering perhaps won't ever be part of the ratings war. However, there is a lot of great stuff out there, which, thanks to the internet is more and more easily accessible.

Take the BBC's Video Nation. It's a massive project bringing together portraits of people around the UK. It includes lots of great clips of people talking about the importance of volunteering to them.

The Community Channel doesn't actually seem to have much on about volunteering online on its own website or on YouTube.

There's also loads of others here like a video about young people's attitudes to volunteering. promoting volunteering in general or telling the experiences of individual volunteers. Here's a video portrait (which seems to be the most popular format for covering volunteering) of UK based Control Arms volunteer Tasneem Clarke, shows us what working on a campaign for a global Arms Trade Treaty can entail.

There are other interesting videos featuring volunteers and the subject of volunteering here.
