Is there any place near the San Antonio / Bulverde / Boerne area that a 20 year old guy can get regular work, for free?

Volunteer work seems to be too irregular, is there anything that looks and feels like a real job, yet you can do for no pay? I'm just trying to burn time (part time) and get some exercise, even if it's just mental exercise, but also help someone out.

Do such jobs exist? Or if you have a job for someone like me (again, no need to pay me), let me know. I'm 20 years old, male, white, athletic, no disabilities, engineering student.

I think, you should post what you can and are willing to do...

Anywhere...then donate your paycheck to a random person each pay day. There is your regular job with $0.

Pretty much anything, except things involving health hazards, or highly skilled work, as I have no degrees or certificates. Anything a person can do with a normally fit body and basic mathematical and computer skills is most likely fitting.

@Primo

If I found a job somewhere I would do that, but I haven't (I applied to several places yesterday, and some today online, currently skimming craigslist for my areas), and I'm not in need of money, only immediate work, so I thought if I could find some place or someone who needs free workers, that they would be more rapid in their hiring process.

Has to be regular, I need an excuse to be gone from the house at least 4 days a week for a good amount of time. If you own a mowing company and needed a worker to help, I would gladly do that.

what I would give to say at any time in my life...let alone at the age of 20..."I'm not in need of money." Sigh.

Believe the Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers, just saw them at something trying to recruit drivers.

I like the idea of working and then giving the paycheck away though. If I was to win the jackpot one day, I think I would spend a lot on just random acts of kindness...Covering a stranger's restaurant tab or grocery bill or parking at the airport. Doesn't that sound like a fun way to spend an afternoon

I'm only not in need of money because I spend very little living at my parents house. Probably about $4.5 a day for food, and whatever electricity it takes to run this computer, and the cost for washing some clothes which is so minimal to their wastes that I could live like a king off what they throw away, like $3000 trips to see a beach in Mexico or cruises.

I'm waiting until fall to go to a specific college to complete my specific training program (there is only one school in the country for it, and there is nothing more I can do at community colleges here to prepare).

There is Gas for heat, electricity for A/C. Property Tax.
You should give your paycheck to your parents since you are freeloading off of them.

Why dont you get pressure washer and go removing graffitti for free. You will never run out of work.

Can you contact any public schools in the area? You will probably have to get a background check done, but I would like to think they could put you to work close to full-time.
