How do you know what volunteering's really like?

I just spotted what someone left on our website about volunteering with CHICKS (Country Holidays for Inner City Kids) and it made me want to do it straight away.

"Definitely one of the best volunteering experiences I've ever been a part of. Although you may feel shattered by the end of the week, it is completely worth it especially when you see just how much the kids develop and get out of their week away. The facilities available are fantastic and the staff are brilliant. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone and everyone."

So, if you've ever volunteered, share your insights and help others work out if it's for them. Rate your volunteering here
