Some People Believe that Unpaid Community Service Should Be a Compulsory Part of High School Programmers

Some people believe that unpaid community service should be a compulsory part of high school programmers (for example working for a charity, improving the neighbourhood or teaching sports to younger children). To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.


These days unpaid community services are common, and high school students are expected to engage in such services. Community services include charity, teaching sports to younger children, taking care of the elderly and participating in cleaning campaigns are some of them. I am in favour of the idea that high school students should do community service, and I will explain my reasons as follows.

High school students will soon join the country’s working force, and they are the ones who will receive the country’s economy; in order to make them responsible, individuals doing community services will enable them to understand the community problems and challenges in detail. So, in the future, they will know how to be part of the solutions and create for them the platform to be problem-solving citizens.

The other importance of participating in Community service is to improve and develop self-esteem and get respect from the community. By exposing themselves to the community will create insight for young individuals for their future careers.

In addition to the above points, one crucial truth that everybody should understand is that the community contributed in one way or another to the well-being of the new generation. So the young generation, which includes high school students, have a moral responsibility to serve the community. One of the means to pay back the community is by actively participating in unpaid community service.

Organizations nowadays give extra credit to candidates who have experience in community service. So doing community service is important for career development.
