A little Volunteering??

Hi there,

I am currently in the second year of a PhD. It is going quite well, I am very busy but I feel I would really benefit from doing some volunteering. I have gone from undergrad (at 19) through masters and into PhD. My academic CV is good, other experience is pretty much nil (I have had quite a few jobs but all unskilled student type jobs). Also as we all know, by the nature of PhDs it would be good to get out at some point in the week and do something a little different. Having said that, the area I am looking into would be related to my area of research, but I would be helping people, rather than unwinding theoretical ideas. Just wanted to know if anyone had experience of doing some volunteering as well as their PhD? Good Idea?
