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

In recent times, more and more people are getting involved in free
community
services. It has been suggested that
such
services, including working in a charity, improving the environment or educating younger children

sports, should be made a compulsory part of high

.
This
essay will argue why
such
programs should be encouraged, but not made compulsory. Proponents of making unpaid
community
services compulsory argue that it compels people to give back to the society. They think enforcement of
such
will help cultivate responsibility in students, who are the leaders of tomorrow. I think that the fact that
this
is not a voluntary service will make it less effective.
For instance

students feel they are being are being maltreated when coerced into social services, like cleaning the environment.
Thus

Hence
, the hope of instilling responsibility is being put forward in support of compelling students.
However
, I strongly recommend the rendition of voluntary unpaid services to the individuals in the society as part of high
school
due to the following reasons.
Firstly
, it is more effective. Generally, people do things better when it emanates from their will, because it brings satisfaction after completion.
For example
, when children are allowed to do their assignments by motivation rather than coercion, they complete it faster and are happier afterwards.
Secondly
