    Volunteer or volunteered

    May I ask whether students who volunteer to do something are volunteer students or volunteered or voluntary students? Thanks.

    Re: Volunteer or volunteered

    They are simply volunteers.

    However, in context, you may need to use the phrase "student volunteers".

    It does not mean the same.

    Volunteer students are students who are voluntarily students.

    Student volunteers are volunteers that are also students.
