The objectives of this study were to explore the multicultural mentoring activity types and propose methods to
invigorate volunteer activities through the experiences of college students participated in the multicultural mentoring
program. To achieve these objectives, eleven college students who participated in the multicultural mentoring program were
chosen and in-depth interviews were conducted and analyzed. Study results showed that there were four volunteer activity
participation types. The first was the one-shot type, which indicated people participated a volunteer activity for a purpose but
gave up the activity because they were not attracted by the activity. Secondly, the persistent type was to find a new value
from the multicultural mentoring program and continue to participate in the same volunteer activity persistently. Thirdly, the
interest type means a type who found new values from a volunteer activity and became interested in other volunteer
activities. Fourthly, the expansion type expanded their horizon to social activities after participating in volunteer activities.
