This essay focuses on the specific characteristics of the changes that voluntarism is facing, through the voices of those who daily live this reality. The experiences told by volunteers show profiles that are quite different from one another, where traditional and new elements interlace in ways that can hardly be described through abstract categories. The stories clearly show that individuals give numerous meanings to volunteer work, and that such meanings change continuously according to different frames of reference and different phases of life.
