I would like to help sick and homeless animals. Animals have a right to a comfortable life just as much as humans do. I wouldn’t like to work as a rescue team volunteer as I can’t stand the sight of blood and I would find it too upsetting.
In my country there are opportunities for people to volunteer at summer youth camps, orphanages and community centers for the elderly. People from anywhere in the world can apply to help through organizations like Experiential Learning International (ELI) and Volunteer Action for Peace (VAP).

Sometimes they run things like computer workshops and they can act as counsellors, too.
