Abstract

Voluntarily work is very significant. Due to the significance of such work, the researchers explored the attitudes of outstanding students at the Arab Academic College for Education in Israel and students at other colleges in Israel towards voluntarily work during the COVID-19 crisis. Students filled in two scales. The first scale included 34 items. It collected data on the motives of volunteering. The second scale involved 10 items. It collected data about the benefits of volunteering in the future. The researchers used quantitative research methods. Data were collected from 100 students. The researchers used descriptive and inferential statistical methods. The results indicate that there is a correlation between the feelings of outstanding students at the Arab college and other excellent students in other colleges; they feel that by volunteering they express their values and talents, and that they are granted independency in making decisions and salient reasons for volunteering: creating a better society, meeting the expectations of the programme coordinator, feeling good, volunteering in a field in which they will closely engage in the future and identifying the goals of the programme and the project in which they are participating.
