The purpose of this article is to consider volunteering from sociological perspective. First, the concept of volunteering is discussed. By focusing on two crucial characteristics of volunteering―spontaneity and publicity―, the conceptual relationships between altruistic activity, public activity, and volunteering are clarified. Second, through an analysis of survey data, I examine factors encouraging participation in volunteering. Analysis shows that the level of solidarity―both present and the one acquired in past―has significant effect on the current participation in volunteer activities. Finally, the mechanism linking solidarity and volunteering is considered by focusing on attachment to social groups and socialization.
