Student or Learner
Is "giving back" used even if you were not benefited by someone? The Food Bank always gives something to people, not getting anything. Maybe it's a general concept regardless of give or take.
2p) The Food Bank story provides just one example of how students majoring in a variety of arts can volunteer using their skills and talents. At art schools, volunteerism is encouraged as a positive way for students to expresst hemselves creatively. “We believe that giving back is the right thing to do and we want students to be connected to the community,” said the director at the art school. “While students are helping the community, they are actually building their work skills as well.”

I did, sorry!
There's still volunteerismis encouragedas and expressthemselvescreatively to be edited.
Yes, volunteering is often referred to as "giving back," meaning to society as a whole. It doesn't always make a lot of sense, but it makes people feel obligated.
In any case, I don't see "giving back" as associated specifically with volunteerism... but rather, it's a way for the fortunate, who have good jobs, a good education, and a home, to repay the community as a whole for their good fortune, by providing resources to "at risk groups" or persons in need.
