Working in a College volunteer center as a coordinator, I receive many requests for the help to revitalize local communities. Doing my job as coordinator, I realized that student volunteers are actually not helping as what they are expected at first. Students are not simply volunteering by using their skills or by working but by stimulating the potential expansion, and creating the new relation of those regions with themselves. In this report I will analyze the reason of why this stimulation and creation is possible, by examining the peculiarity of students volunteer using 'T-apartments' as an example. To examine it, I will use the theory of 'a stranger's effect' and 'Exchange' from anthropological, environmental sociological, regional economic and community development's earlier studies. This experimental theory will show the possibility of effective role and relations, both for the student, and the local region that has difficulty.
