Some people believe that unpaid community service should be a compulsory part of high school programmers (for example working for a charity, improving the neighborhood or teaching sports to younger children). To what extent do you agree or disagree?

It has been suggested that high
school
students should be involved in unpaid community services as a compulsory part of high
school
programs. Most of the colleges are already providing opportunities to gain
work
experience,
however
these are not compulsory. In my opinion, sending students to
work
in community services is a good idea as it can provide them with many lots of valuable skills. Life skills are very important and by doing voluntary
work
, students can learn how to communicate with

team, but

how to manage their time and improve their organizational skills. Nowadays, unfortunately, teenagers do not have many after-

or play video games. By giving them compulsory

activities with charitable or community organizations, they will be encouraged to do something more creative. Skills gained through compulsory
work
will not only be an asset on their CV but
also
increase their employability. Students will
also
gain more respect towards
work
and money as they will realize that it is not that easy to earn them and hopefully will learn to spend them in a more practical way. Healthy life balance and exercises are strongly promoted by the NHS, and
therefore
any kind of spare time charity
work
will prevent from sitting and doing nothing. It could
also
possibly reduce the crime level in the high
school
age group. If students have activities to do, they will not be bored and come up with silly ideas which can be dangerous for them or their surroundings. In conclusion, I think
this
is a very good idea, and I hope
this
program will be put into action for high
school
colleges shortly.
