Community Service Synthesis Essay
It is apparent that the individual is out of touch with his/her environment, as we live in a time of isolation. This view of a frightful outside world is a
common mindset in people, prompting them to stay home with the excuse that some things are not worth experiencing. Beyond this misconception, is a
world that although may need some work, has opportunities for every kind of person. In fact, a "frightful outside world" can change with the
contribution of a helping hand; this is what makes community service imperative. There is no better way to encourage students in assisting their
communities than implementing service requirements in High School, and various sources explain the benefits behind these standards. A few of these
excerpts include "Community Service...show more content...
One of their main claims in support of these educational requirements is for personal enrichment, and their passage reveals that "Doing Community
Service is empowering. When an individual goes out in the world and interacts with other people in the spirit of bettering, that individual makes a
contribution and will feel a sense of accomplishment (Source A)." That is to say, when we engage in serving our community we catalyze the
development of our own human nature. Providing assistance to those in need speeds up the process of broadening one's moral conscience, just like
how scholar John Prueter did with the elderly. The Detroit News published a story on how this seventh–grader was inspired into nursing after spending
time with various senior citizens. The major newspaper claims that "Even after High School, Prueter hopes to continue working with the elderly by
studying nursing. He says he became interested in the field because of his volunteer work (Source B)." Service to one's community begins with the
benefits of others, but in the end it satisfies the

Community Service Personal Statement
Growing up as a Vietnamese–American, my family emphasized the Confucian values of familial and communal support. This, coupled with the
suburban setting I grew up in, instilled in me the value of community service. I desire to use my skills and knowledge to help those around me. As a
physician, I plan to use my medical training to service my community, practicing within it as well as serving as a volunteer to treat underprivileged
individuals. Furthermore, I seek out positions where I can work with different ethnic populations. I am a first–generation American and I recognize the
difficulties minorities and immigrants have. By volunteering in these settings, I have become more aware of the diverse cultural and socioeconomic
backgrounds that

Essay Community Service Project Reflection
The thought of community service was a bore to me before I began my volunteer work. I dreaded starting my community service although I knew I
had to do it. Where I earned my hours did not even matter to me. I just wanted to get it over with. To my surprise it was not what I expected.
Community service was not a painful experience; it was a very enjoyable and beneficial experience.
I performed my community service with Habitat for Humanity. The non‐profit organization chooses the applicant that purchases the house and
Habitat only charges them the cost of the materials. Almost every worker is a volunteer so Habitat for Humanity does not have to pay a high amount of
wages. I felt good about myself being one of those volunteers. The future...show more content...
We shared many laughs and stories while we worked. It was satisfying to help improve these people's lives.
I took pleasure in how much I learned at Habitat for Humanity. We were doing construction so many tools were involved. On my first day I was
unaware of the names of most tools. Learning the names and functions of each tool was exciting. Being a male, I felt more confident knowing these
things. Construction involves math and clever thinking as well. On my first day I just watched as the processes took place. Eventually, I was helping
make the decisions. I even helped a volunteer build a fence and make precise measurements. The education about construction will benefit me for the
rest of my life.
The amount of respect I earned was an incomparable benefit that I received from community service. Oil companies volunteered their employees on
Saturdays and I spoke with all of them. They recognized my enrollment and scholarship achievements. Some of them see me and recognize me
around town and they ask about how my goals are going. I met people who made a huge positive impact on my life. Employees without a college
education worked full time at Habitat for Humanity, and I realized what I do not want to do with my life. During lunch breaks I spoke with the
supervisor, Alynda Best, and she explained to me the significance of hard work in college. Most importantly, I met the lady who made this opportunity
possible for me and she

At first when I found out I was going to have to do this essay I was not too excited. I had no idea what I could possibly write about because I did not
know that things I did on the average day could be considered community service.
"Community Service is important for many reasons. Taking part and volunteering teaches compassion and understanding. You can volunteer for
something you really believe and have an interest in, and can volunteer as much or as little as you'd like or have time for." Community service is really
easy to get into. I mean, it is not like you have to put out an application and have an interview in order to do it. It is really easy to get into, and is

It benefits me in a lot of ways as well. For instance, I get extra credit, opportunities to get ribbons, and the opportunity to get to go on the canoe trip for

When I help my grandma and the neighbors I help with things around the house, babysit, and do yard work. Babysitting isn't exactly my favorite thing,
but I do it to help out. Most of the things I do I don't mind doing. I love helping out.
At my church I help clean, watch the kids, organize the youth group, plan plays, plan trips, and serve communion. Helping out at the church is
one of my favorite things to do because I get to do so much. My favorite things that I do at the church are with the youth group. I organize who all
needs a ride, what we will be working on that day, and the activity afterwards. I also plan the trips in the summer and which camp we will go to.
And at church events I keep an eye on the kids for their parents and find things fun for them to do. I clean up after church, meetings, and events.
Usually it only takes a little over an hour and a half to do. On Sundays I serve communion and sometimes I even read scripture. We do an Easter play
and a Christmas play every year and I help decide what play we will do and organize the meetings and the performance

"Volunteers are not paid; not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."– Sherry Anderson (Volunteering Quotes: Finest Quotes). On
average, when people think about community service, they assume that volunteering is just 'hours we need to be able to graduate' and that is it.
Community service is more than just hours; community service is based on the acts performed by someone with the purpose of helping or bringing
benefits to his or her community. People frequently compare community service as a punishment since it is often offered to small–time offenders as an
alternative to fines or jail time. However, community service is the vital force to many communities since they depend on the service made by the

Volunteering in your community helps solve many dilemmas in your community that descend through the eyes of government and social agencies
(Everything you ever wanted to know about volunteering). Discussing about volunteering to teenagers should be the first step for a better life, since
teenagers are the future of tomorrow and they will leave a mark from yesterday. Volunteering has been such an important matter, that schools in many
countries around the world established that 12th grade students will need certain hours of community service in order to graduate. But the frequent
answers all the schools are getting are "Why do I need to volunteer? I have better things to do!" What people are forgetting is that each one of them is
part of a community, a community that is not perfect and that the government sometimes forgets about their problems or needs, because obviously the
government needs to take care of other things that require more attention. People are not only helping others, they are also helping themselves
(Volunteering). Volunteering is not a new subject now, but people did not perceive it before because as time goes by, volunteering is becoming more
and more popular since each year more people volunteer. Volunteering began around the early 19th century since America was experimenting with the
Great Awakening. The Great Awakening was a period in which the importance of the church was slowly dying and instead the

they also provide financial counseling and homebuyer assistance, that help individuals to get better understanding of the process that need to do

Persuasive Essay About Community Service
Community service is something that as a Junior we have to do till senior year. Community service is when you volunteer to help a non profit
organization or a non profit event. This is an unpaid position. There are many benefits to having teenagers do community service. One benefit is
that teenagers are learning to be more responsible. If they fully commit to the position that they have agreed to do that shows the responsibility of
the individual. They could be doing sports or watching tv but they choose to help a specific organization which proves their responsibility.
Something I have always loved doing was working with animals. Cats, dogs, snakes,fish, rabbits, it doesn't matter I love them all. To be able to
work in an environment with animals you have to learn to love them all. I personally never enjoyed small dogs but they eventually grew on me
because I knew they needed just as much love and attention as the big dogs do. For my community service I chose to volunteer at the MSPCA at
Nevins Farm. I was definitely very excited to be able to work with the animals. I specifically work with the dogs. I have learned so much about
them. The MSPCA is a very important organization and they do a lot of great thing. But they have also done some bad. They help the community by
taking in animals that someone decided they didn't want, couldn't have, or found as a stray. There are many reasons people give up there animals.
These animals are pretty well taken care of. We feed them, almost all dogs get a walk 2–4 times per day. To these animals this is a big deal. Many of
these animals have never seen what it means to be loved. Its very sad but true. The first time I went to the MSPCA I was very annoyed. I had to sit
thru a 4 hour orientation and then I had to follow someone around for another 3 hours TWO weeks later before I could do anything. At this point I
was extremely annoyed because I have walked dogs from 5 Pound puppies to 180 pound Cane corso's. I noticed that a lot of the volunteers had no idea
how to actually care for a dog when I first showed up. There was so much stupid going on and so disorganized. Because I was new we can only walk
specific dogs. There are levels 1–4. Level 1 is dogs that don't pull,

What Does Community Service Mean To Me Essay
What does community service means to me? Well, to me community service mean helping your community become a better place. When you do
things for your neighborhood, it makes you feel like a better person. There are all sorts of activities you can do in your community. You can work
with children at school, work with the elderly, or help people that are less fortunate and make their day very special. Community Service is very
important because it gives you a chance to bond with the people in your neighborhood. It will also give you a chance to give back to your

Persuasive Essay On Community Service
Every Sunday, I have the opportunity to help as a child care worker in my church's nursery; and every week, after spending just one hour watching
over the kids so that their parents can go to service and not have to worry about their children, I remember exactly why I spend my free time helping
others. The term "Noblesse Oblige" is why I choose to be involved in multiple childcare opportunities and community service clubs. I believe it is my
job to make sure those who are less fortunate, or in need of aid, get the help they require and deserve. I take part in different aspects of community
service because it helps better my community and makes me a stronger leader.
For the past three years at Liberty High School, I have been a member of the Key Club community service organization. As a member of this club, I
am able to help with different jobs around the community that help the people in our town specifically. For example, every first Wednesday of the
month I go and help with a project called Snack Pack. During this time, about fifteen other kids and I prepare three weeks worth of food for
seventeen high schoolers in our school district. These are kids that do not have enough money at home to always have food on their table. Snack
Pack plays an important role in their lives because without it, they would not always eat. These kids deserve the chance to live their life and go to
school without having to worry about whether or not the will eat dinner that night. That is why I value my role in this club so much, because I
know what we do makes a difference. When the kids collect their food, they are able to relax a little more knowing that their family will be able to
eat. Another aspect of Key Club that I take part in is Fairy Tale Forest, held at Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary. Every year, the weekend
before Halloween, I volunteer, with a handful of others from the club, to go and work at the children's fairy tale nature walk. The past two years I
have been a runner. This means I do the odd little jobs, like run food and drinks around to the different characters that are working in the trail, that
would otherwise be forgotten or not done at all. Although this is a small role, it is what helps make

Benefits Of Community Service
In a college student's life, there are many obstacles that can keep students from doing what they love and enjoy; an after school job, homework and
social life. All of these may keep students from taking a look at their own communities. Some may never realize how much their neighborhood may
need help until they become the ones with the helping hands. The question is: Should college students be required to do Community service in order to
graduate? Community service refers to "service that a person performs for the benefit of his or her local community" and is done without pay,
according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary. Performing community service is not the same as volunteering since it is not always done
voluntarily. It may be done for a variety of reasons: Some students are required to complete community service as part of a class requirement, or in
order to graduate, or to become a member of certain organizations. Adults also participate in community service as a way to help others or if they are
ordered to do so by a judge. There is even government programs that offer free dental care in exchange for community service. Some Community
service examples include: tutoring children after school, collecting school supplies to donate, planting a school garden, visiting residents of a retirement
center, delivering meals to senior citizens, driving them to appointments, passing out food at a soup kitchen, collecting used clothes to be donated or
making first aids kits for

Persuasive Essay About Community Service
As an 18–year–old tennager, I was forced by my parents to participate a summer volunteer program in my freshman year. Even though I felt that I
was a victim of "tyranny" in the beginning, I realized that I actually enjoyed the process of helping people in the middle of the program. Now, I
participate that program every year as an active member, and I have gained the personal enrichment that I am unable to learn from other sources such
as math club or SAT preparatory class. There is no doubt that community service can bring essential benefits in helping students develop theirmoral
value and future interest, and it should be mandatory because some students attempt to utilize community service as a tool for their own profit without
the school supervision. Volunteerismenables students to gain the moral lesson that is vital to their life and develop their future interest. According to
source 2, "community service teaches us through experience – about the relationship between empathy and responsibility, about what it takes to be part
of a community, in essence, about human being". While students are helping their community, they learn the crucial moral lessons in the most direct
and impressive way. Through an actual experience of volunteering, students are reminded that it is their responsibility to serve for their community
because they are a part of it. Helping without any feedback allows them to realize the power of empathy, the essential value that makes the society a

Community Service Persuasive Speech
General Purpose: To persuade the audience that community service should be implemented into high school requirements.
INTRODUCTION
Attention Gainer: According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, San Diego's homeless population is the fourth largest in the
United States (Schroeder, 2015).
Reason to Listen: As you will soon see, there are easy steps that we can all take to help this growing problem in our community.
Speaker Credibility (right to inform): I was in an organization called National Charity League which allowed me to volunteer around my community
throughout high school and I have also researched about how beneficial community service can be.
Thesis statement: To persuade the audience that there should be a required amount of hours that a student needs to volunteer before they can graduate
high school.
Preview your Main Points: Many students do not volunteer because it is not a requirement and therefore are uneducated about the benefits of
volunteering. Creating a mandatory amount of hours a student needs to complete will educate students about the benefits of volunteering as well as
benefit their communities.
II. BODY
Main Point # 1 (Problems/Harms) (this should be a full sentence) Many students are not motivated to volunteer and therefore in times of need like right
now, do not know how to help.
Information (sub–point): Volunteering is becoming less common and therefore our communities are not receiving as much support.
In Srebro's article, she states that "volunteer rates have been steadily declining for over a decade" (Srebro, 2016).
Information (sub–point): Because teens are not required to perform community service, many do not get into the habit of volunteering so in effect are
less likely to volunteer in the future.
"Fifty–four percent of adolescents who performed volunteer service in high school volunteered again 2 years later" (Planty & Regnier, 2003).
Information (sub–point): With all the natural disasters occurring across the county whether it be hurricanes or fires. We need volunteers and donations
now more than ever.

Community Observation Report
Community service is services volunteered by individuals or an organization to benefit a community or its institutions. My favorite community service
job that I completed was located at The Junior Achievement at the Atlanta Discovery Center. The objective of this service was to teach children how to
survive and succeed in the world economically through the use of time, talent, cooperation, and education. Before they came to the center students were
trained by their teachers to budget money and to spend it wisely. So when they finally arrived, a real life model was presented to them. With the
compelling volunteer and student interaction, we helped each student understand the theory to life and also understand the differences between needs
and wants. The building was set up with different mini department stores like Chick–fil–A, Publix, philanthropy shop, SunTrust bank, home/apartment
agencies, automobile shop, Belk, Kaiser Permanente, and AT&T. These shops were to help the students understand manage the differences between
what they really need and what they really want. In addition, the goal was to also help build character and skills to make it in the fast–moving real
world. Before the volunteer work began the director of the center sat us in the room and trained us, with the use of a PowerPoint on the tasks that we
would be performing. First, she assigned us a store, and some people had to share stores because some jobs involved printing. I was assigned the

I have participated in many community service activities during my four years of high school that demonstrates my commitment to service to others,

Why I Need Community Service
Imagine struggling to afford the 'mandatory' three meals you're supposed to consume a day. It would be hard and stressful right? I met over one
hundred hungry people that have to feel this emotion every day of their life, struggling to provide enough food to make a meal, fulfill their hunger, and
stay healthy. On October 17th my senior year of high school I volunteered at a place called "Broad Street Ministry" a Christian based community
church. They have many community service opportunities that you can get involved with. I helped with feeding the homeless or those who cannot
afford to eat. A teacher at my high school introduced me to this opportunity and I took away a lot of memories I will cherish with this event.
On October 17th myself and five other students loaded a van with our health teacher and headed off to Philadelphia. Personally, I volunteered with
this event just for community service hours at first but after I left the event I walked away with more than just some hours that I could write on
paper, I walked away with life lessons and a heavy heart. We got off the bus at our destination around 9:00 AM to help set up the equipment we
were using for the day. As we set everything up I thought that we overdid it because we many tables pushed together forming a long line each table
full of food followed by coolers of soda and water. After we got done setting up we had a brief meeting with a head leader of the Broad Street
Ministry simply thanking us and giving us a run down of the day. I didn't think the event would last too long and no way there would be that many
people coming to get food. I put on the mandatory clothing items we had to wear and got in my place to help out. Noon is when everything started
and people started forming a line with plates in hand. More and more people got in the line and eventually we opened everything up to start
serving people. By the time we started serving there had to be at least 100 people in line, I have only ever saw this happen on TV or in magazines,
never personally. There was such a diverse group of people that came to this event. I noticed the way each persons face lit up when they filled their

Coming from a non–agricultural background, my lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian has always been a bit harder for me to achieve than

interest to me. Being able to combine that with agriculture is absolutely thrilling. Within the past four years, I have participated in several
community service and volunteer work and activities. During my freshman year, I volunteered to work in the petting zoo and with pony rides at the
gibson county fair. I helped hand out feed to kids and showed them all the different species of animals. With the pony rides, we helped children on
and off of ponies, who were unable to do so themselves. This is an important part of agriculture. Ponies and petting zoos provide significant income

During the fall, we held a canned food drive. Canned food can be related back to farmers. They grow the food we eat, whether it be canned or from

crops require pollination to help fertilize fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, my senior year I volunteered at a veterinarian office where I was able to
job shadow. This was detrimental for my future career. The real experience is something you can't get in mosthigh school classrooms. The vet not only
works with dogs and cats but also deals with cows,horses, goats, and other farm animals. Horses can not only be used in the livestock industry for
training and competitions but can be used to herd other livestock. Cows, goats, and sheep provide the industry with meat and wool. Agricultural

What is a Community? Essay example
A community is established when more than two people share the same values and through time this personal connection evolves into a fellowship
governed by rituals, traditions, and a particular form of communication that when taken together makes a group of individuals whether living in a
specific geographical area or connected by ideals so distinct that their distinguishing marks allow them to stand out from among the crowd. They do not
just believe in something like an organization but they need each other to survive and thrive. A good example is the Old OrderAmish Mennonite
community wherein the community serves as source of identity, strength and provides the reason why they should sustain the community's way of life. It

Communities are affected, and in a sense defined by, forces that affect community members and their space. The forces can range from outside
organizations such as the government and large corporations ... These components of the community vary infinitely, and thus no two communities are
the same; even a given community is not the same over time (Cnaan & Milofsky, p. 1)
Based on this definition it is interesting to note that the Old Order Amish Mennoite community satisfies the requirements of place, interests and
communion. Aside from being a perfect example of a community the Amish people exemplify what it means to be a part of a community that it is their
source of identity, strength, and sustainability. Each individual exists for the community but as a whole the community nurtures each member and
therefore it is unthinkable for an Amish man or woman to leave their community behind. On the other hand many Americans feel they must "get
involved." In public life as well as in private, we can discern the habits that sustain individualism and commitment as well as what makes them
problematic. (Bellah, p.74) For the Amish Mennonite community the purpose of the community is very clear. First, it provides them a sense of
identity, not only who they are as of the present but also helps them to trace their origins and the reason for their

I walked there with three girls named Alicia, Veronica and Karla. They showed me where their beds where and gave me a whole tour around the
institution. I was impressed with all the beds they had, it was a huge wide room with many vertically arranged beds for each and every one of
them. I started on cleaning and washing all the bed quilts, and all the girls were willing to help within everything, I didn't feel it was a job. They all
seemed so cheerful and happy because somebody came to help them. Though, I was the one who got out learning things I hardly knew about. They all
looked so mature to me, but I only could see a little girl from the outside.
Then, I saw from across the room a very shy and quite little girl, she barely talked and interacted with the others. So, I went up to her, and asked
her name. "My name is Sofia," she said with tears in her eyes, "What's wrong?", I asked. The other girls told me she had just arrived to the
orphanage a few days ago. So, I grabbed her hand and went to the kitchen to give her a sandwich. She was amazed the whole sandwich was just for
her, and she couldn't stop thanking me. This shocked me a lot because there are many children out there that don't have a place to stay or anything to
eat, while we who have the privilege to have a place to call home, food always on the table, and most importantly a family, we take all that and
everybody for granted. We should place more value on all those

Community Service Essay Benefits

  • 1. Community Service Synthesis Essay It is apparent that the individual is out of touch with his/her environment, as we live in a time of isolation. This view of a frightful outside world is a common mindset in people, prompting them to stay home with the excuse that some things are not worth experiencing. Beyond this misconception, is a world that although may need some work, has opportunities for every kind of person. In fact, a "frightful outside world" can change with the contribution of a helping hand; this is what makes community service imperative. There is no better way to encourage students in assisting their communities than implementing service requirements in High School, and various sources explain the benefits behind these standards. A few of these excerpts include "Community Service...show more content... One of their main claims in support of these educational requirements is for personal enrichment, and their passage reveals that "Doing Community Service is empowering. When an individual goes out in the world and interacts with other people in the spirit of bettering, that individual makes a contribution and will feel a sense of accomplishment (Source A)." That is to say, when we engage in serving our community we catalyze the development of our own human nature. Providing assistance to those in need speeds up the process of broadening one's moral conscience, just like how scholar John Prueter did with the elderly. The Detroit News published a story on how this seventh–grader was inspired into nursing after spending time with various senior citizens. The major newspaper claims that "Even after High School, Prueter hopes to continue working with the elderly by studying nursing. He says he became interested in the field because of his volunteer work (Source B)." Service to one's community begins with the benefits of others, but in the end it satisfies the Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 2. Community Service Personal Statement Growing up as a Vietnamese–American, my family emphasized the Confucian values of familial and communal support. This, coupled with the suburban setting I grew up in, instilled in me the value of community service. I desire to use my skills and knowledge to help those around me. As a physician, I plan to use my medical training to service my community, practicing within it as well as serving as a volunteer to treat underprivileged individuals. Furthermore, I seek out positions where I can work with different ethnic populations. I am a first–generation American and I recognize the difficulties minorities and immigrants have. By volunteering in these settings, I have become more aware of the diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds that Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 3. Essay Community Service Project Reflection The thought of community service was a bore to me before I began my volunteer work. I dreaded starting my community service although I knew I had to do it. Where I earned my hours did not even matter to me. I just wanted to get it over with. To my surprise it was not what I expected. Community service was not a painful experience; it was a very enjoyable and beneficial experience. I performed my community service with Habitat for Humanity. The non‐profit organization chooses the applicant that purchases the house and Habitat only charges them the cost of the materials. Almost every worker is a volunteer so Habitat for Humanity does not have to pay a high amount of wages. I felt good about myself being one of those volunteers. The future...show more content... We shared many laughs and stories while we worked. It was satisfying to help improve these people's lives. I took pleasure in how much I learned at Habitat for Humanity. We were doing construction so many tools were involved. On my first day I was unaware of the names of most tools. Learning the names and functions of each tool was exciting. Being a male, I felt more confident knowing these things. Construction involves math and clever thinking as well. On my first day I just watched as the processes took place. Eventually, I was helping make the decisions. I even helped a volunteer build a fence and make precise measurements. The education about construction will benefit me for the rest of my life. The amount of respect I earned was an incomparable benefit that I received from community service. Oil companies volunteered their employees on Saturdays and I spoke with all of them. They recognized my enrollment and scholarship achievements. Some of them see me and recognize me around town and they ask about how my goals are going. I met people who made a huge positive impact on my life. Employees without a college education worked full time at Habitat for Humanity, and I realized what I do not want to do with my life. During lunch breaks I spoke with the supervisor, Alynda Best, and she explained to me the significance of hard work in college. Most importantly, I met the lady who made this opportunity possible for me and she Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 4. At first when I found out I was going to have to do this essay I was not too excited. I had no idea what I could possibly write about because I did not know that things I did on the average day could be considered community service. "Community Service is important for many reasons. Taking part and volunteering teaches compassion and understanding. You can volunteer for something you really believe and have an interest in, and can volunteer as much or as little as you'd like or have time for." Community service is really easy to get into. I mean, it is not like you have to put out an application and have an interview in order to do it. It is really easy to get into, and is really fun. It is things you wouldn't even think are considered, like:...show more content... It benefits me in a lot of ways as well. For instance, I get extra credit, opportunities to get ribbons, and the opportunity to get to go on the canoe trip for free. When I help my grandma and the neighbors I help with things around the house, babysit, and do yard work. Babysitting isn't exactly my favorite thing, but I do it to help out. Most of the things I do I don't mind doing. I love helping out. At my church I help clean, watch the kids, organize the youth group, plan plays, plan trips, and serve communion. Helping out at the church is one of my favorite things to do because I get to do so much. My favorite things that I do at the church are with the youth group. I organize who all needs a ride, what we will be working on that day, and the activity afterwards. I also plan the trips in the summer and which camp we will go to. And at church events I keep an eye on the kids for their parents and find things fun for them to do. I clean up after church, meetings, and events. Usually it only takes a little over an hour and a half to do. On Sundays I serve communion and sometimes I even read scripture. We do an Easter play and a Christmas play every year and I help decide what play we will do and organize the meetings and the performance Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 5. "Volunteers are not paid; not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."– Sherry Anderson (Volunteering Quotes: Finest Quotes). On average, when people think about community service, they assume that volunteering is just 'hours we need to be able to graduate' and that is it. Community service is more than just hours; community service is based on the acts performed by someone with the purpose of helping or bringing benefits to his or her community. People frequently compare community service as a punishment since it is often offered to small–time offenders as an alternative to fines or jail time. However, community service is the vital force to many communities since they depend on the service made by the volunteers...show more content... Volunteering in your community helps solve many dilemmas in your community that descend through the eyes of government and social agencies (Everything you ever wanted to know about volunteering). Discussing about volunteering to teenagers should be the first step for a better life, since teenagers are the future of tomorrow and they will leave a mark from yesterday. Volunteering has been such an important matter, that schools in many countries around the world established that 12th grade students will need certain hours of community service in order to graduate. But the frequent answers all the schools are getting are "Why do I need to volunteer? I have better things to do!" What people are forgetting is that each one of them is part of a community, a community that is not perfect and that the government sometimes forgets about their problems or needs, because obviously the government needs to take care of other things that require more attention. People are not only helping others, they are also helping themselves (Volunteering). Volunteering is not a new subject now, but people did not perceive it before because as time goes by, volunteering is becoming more and more popular since each year more people volunteer. Volunteering began around the early 19th century since America was experimenting with the Great Awakening. The Great Awakening was a period in which the importance of the church was slowly dying and instead the Get more content on HelpWriting.net

  • 7. Persuasive Essay About Community Service Community service is something that as a Junior we have to do till senior year. Community service is when you volunteer to help a non profit organization or a non profit event. This is an unpaid position. There are many benefits to having teenagers do community service. One benefit is that teenagers are learning to be more responsible. If they fully commit to the position that they have agreed to do that shows the responsibility of the individual. They could be doing sports or watching tv but they choose to help a specific organization which proves their responsibility. Something I have always loved doing was working with animals. Cats, dogs, snakes,fish, rabbits, it doesn't matter I love them all. To be able to work in an environment with animals you have to learn to love them all. I personally never enjoyed small dogs but they eventually grew on me because I knew they needed just as much love and attention as the big dogs do. For my community service I chose to volunteer at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm. I was definitely very excited to be able to work with the animals. I specifically work with the dogs. I have learned so much about them. The MSPCA is a very important organization and they do a lot of great thing. But they have also done some bad. They help the community by taking in animals that someone decided they didn't want, couldn't have, or found as a stray. There are many reasons people give up there animals. These animals are pretty well taken care of. We feed them, almost all dogs get a walk 2–4 times per day. To these animals this is a big deal. Many of these animals have never seen what it means to be loved. Its very sad but true. The first time I went to the MSPCA I was very annoyed. I had to sit thru a 4 hour orientation and then I had to follow someone around for another 3 hours TWO weeks later before I could do anything. At this point I was extremely annoyed because I have walked dogs from 5 Pound puppies to 180 pound Cane corso's. I noticed that a lot of the volunteers had no idea how to actually care for a dog when I first showed up. There was so much stupid going on and so disorganized. Because I was new we can only walk specific dogs. There are levels 1–4. Level 1 is dogs that don't pull, Get more content on HelpWriting.net

When you do things for your neighborhood, it makes you feel like a better person. There are all sorts of activities you can do in your community. You can work with children at school, work with the elderly, or help people that are less fortunate and make their day very special.

  • 9. Persuasive Essay On Community Service Every Sunday, I have the opportunity to help as a child care worker in my church's nursery; and every week, after spending just one hour watching over the kids so that their parents can go to service and not have to worry about their children, I remember exactly why I spend my free time helping others. The term "Noblesse Oblige" is why I choose to be involved in multiple childcare opportunities and community service clubs. I believe it is my job to make sure those who are less fortunate, or in need of aid, get the help they require and deserve. I take part in different aspects of community service because it helps better my community and makes me a stronger leader. For the past three years at Liberty High School, I have been a member of the Key Club community service organization. As a member of this club, I am able to help with different jobs around the community that help the people in our town specifically. For example, every first Wednesday of the month I go and help with a project called Snack Pack. During this time, about fifteen other kids and I prepare three weeks worth of food for seventeen high schoolers in our school district. These are kids that do not have enough money at home to always have food on their table. Snack Pack plays an important role in their lives because without it, they would not always eat. These kids deserve the chance to live their life and go to school without having to worry about whether or not the will eat dinner that night. That is why I value my role in this club so much, because I know what we do makes a difference. When the kids collect their food, they are able to relax a little more knowing that their family will be able to eat. Another aspect of Key Club that I take part in is Fairy Tale Forest, held at Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary. Every year, the weekend before Halloween, I volunteer, with a handful of others from the club, to go and work at the children's fairy tale nature walk. The past two years I have been a runner. This means I do the odd little jobs, like run food and drinks around to the different characters that are working in the trail, that would otherwise be forgotten or not done at all. Although this is a small role, it is what helps make Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 10. Benefits Of Community Service In a college student's life, there are many obstacles that can keep students from doing what they love and enjoy; an after school job, homework and social life. All of these may keep students from taking a look at their own communities. Some may never realize how much their neighborhood may need help until they become the ones with the helping hands. The question is: Should college students be required to do Community service in order to graduate? Community service refers to "service that a person performs for the benefit of his or her local community" and is done without pay, according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary. Performing community service is not the same as volunteering since it is not always done voluntarily. It may be done for a variety of reasons: Some students are required to complete community service as part of a class requirement, or in order to graduate, or to become a member of certain organizations. Adults also participate in community service as a way to help others or if they are ordered to do so by a judge. There is even government programs that offer free dental care in exchange for community service. Some Community service examples include: tutoring children after school, collecting school supplies to donate, planting a school garden, visiting residents of a retirement center, delivering meals to senior citizens, driving them to appointments, passing out food at a soup kitchen, collecting used clothes to be donated or making first aids kits for Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 11. Persuasive Essay About Community Service As an 18–year–old tennager, I was forced by my parents to participate a summer volunteer program in my freshman year. Even though I felt that I was a victim of "tyranny" in the beginning, I realized that I actually enjoyed the process of helping people in the middle of the program. Now, I participate that program every year as an active member, and I have gained the personal enrichment that I am unable to learn from other sources such as math club or SAT preparatory class. There is no doubt that community service can bring essential benefits in helping students develop theirmoral value and future interest, and it should be mandatory because some students attempt to utilize community service as a tool for their own profit without the school supervision. Volunteerismenables students to gain the moral lesson that is vital to their life and develop their future interest. According to source 2, "community service teaches us through experience – about the relationship between empathy and responsibility, about what it takes to be part of a community, in essence, about human being". While students are helping their community, they learn the crucial moral lessons in the most direct and impressive way. Through an actual experience of volunteering, students are reminded that it is their responsibility to serve for their community because they are a part of it. Helping without any feedback allows them to realize the power of empathy, the essential value that makes the society a Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 12. Community Service Persuasive Speech General Purpose: To persuade the audience that community service should be implemented into high school requirements. INTRODUCTION Attention Gainer: According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, San Diego's homeless population is the fourth largest in the United States (Schroeder, 2015). Reason to Listen: As you will soon see, there are easy steps that we can all take to help this growing problem in our community. Speaker Credibility (right to inform): I was in an organization called National Charity League which allowed me to volunteer around my community throughout high school and I have also researched about how beneficial community service can be. Thesis statement: To persuade the audience that there should be a required amount of hours that a student needs to volunteer before they can graduate high school. Preview your Main Points: Many students do not volunteer because it is not a requirement and therefore are uneducated about the benefits of volunteering. Creating a mandatory amount of hours a student needs to complete will educate students about the benefits of volunteering as well as benefit their communities. II. BODY Main Point # 1 (Problems/Harms) (this should be a full sentence) Many students are not motivated to volunteer and therefore in times of need like right now, do not know how to help. Information (sub–point): Volunteering is becoming less common and therefore our communities are not receiving as much support. In Srebro's article, she states that "volunteer rates have been steadily declining for over a decade" (Srebro, 2016). Information (sub–point): Because teens are not required to perform community service, many do not get into the habit of volunteering so in effect are less likely to volunteer in the future. "Fifty–four percent of adolescents who performed volunteer service in high school volunteered again 2 years later" (Planty & Regnier, 2003). Information (sub–point): With all the natural disasters occurring across the county whether it be hurricanes or fires. We need volunteers and donations now more than ever. TRANSITION STATEMENT: Volunteering is becoming less popular because many people never volunteered when they were young so they did not get

Service opportunities have shaped me into the person I am today and these projects have made me realize how fortunate I am for all that I have. While I've been doing these service projects through the years, it has been a pleasure seeing the joy on the faces of people that aren't as fortunate as I am. Service projects that I have completed include managing the fish booth at the St. Leo's Parish Festival, being an altar server at St. Leo's Parish, helping cook dinner for the Ridgway Fire Department during carnival day setup, participating in the St. Marys Light Up Night by dancing, and Christmas caroling to local residents.

  • 15. Community Observation Report Community service is services volunteered by individuals or an organization to benefit a community or its institutions. My favorite community service job that I completed was located at The Junior Achievement at the Atlanta Discovery Center. The objective of this service was to teach children how to survive and succeed in the world economically through the use of time, talent, cooperation, and education. Before they came to the center students were trained by their teachers to budget money and to spend it wisely. So when they finally arrived, a real life model was presented to them. With the compelling volunteer and student interaction, we helped each student understand the theory to life and also understand the differences between needs and wants. The building was set up with different mini department stores like Chick–fil–A, Publix, philanthropy shop, SunTrust bank, home/apartment agencies, automobile shop, Belk, Kaiser Permanente, and AT&T. These shops were to help the students understand manage the differences between what they really need and what they really want. In addition, the goal was to also help build character and skills to make it in the fast–moving real world. Before the volunteer work began the director of the center sat us in the room and trained us, with the use of a PowerPoint on the tasks that we would be performing. First, she assigned us a store, and some people had to share stores because some jobs involved printing. I was assigned the Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 16. Personal Statements For Community Service I have participated in many community service activities during my four years of high school that demonstrates my commitment to service to others, but three of them especially stand out. The first activity was through Project Angel, which collects food donations from Avon schools and hands them out to families during the holiday season. I have been involved with Project Angel both in picking up food donations at the schools and delivering the food to the families around the community. Participating in this organization has been a very eye–opening experience because it has shown me that there are people in our community that are struggling. This experience has fueled my determination to better the world around me and provide a helping hand Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 17. Why I Need Community Service Imagine struggling to afford the 'mandatory' three meals you're supposed to consume a day. It would be hard and stressful right? I met over one hundred hungry people that have to feel this emotion every day of their life, struggling to provide enough food to make a meal, fulfill their hunger, and stay healthy. On October 17th my senior year of high school I volunteered at a place called "Broad Street Ministry" a Christian based community church. They have many community service opportunities that you can get involved with. I helped with feeding the homeless or those who cannot afford to eat. A teacher at my high school introduced me to this opportunity and I took away a lot of memories I will cherish with this event. On October 17th myself and five other students loaded a van with our health teacher and headed off to Philadelphia. Personally, I volunteered with this event just for community service hours at first but after I left the event I walked away with more than just some hours that I could write on paper, I walked away with life lessons and a heavy heart. We got off the bus at our destination around 9:00 AM to help set up the equipment we were using for the day. As we set everything up I thought that we overdid it because we many tables pushed together forming a long line each table full of food followed by coolers of soda and water. After we got done setting up we had a brief meeting with a head leader of the Broad Street Ministry simply thanking us and giving us a run down of the day. I didn't think the event would last too long and no way there would be that many people coming to get food. I put on the mandatory clothing items we had to wear and got in my place to help out. Noon is when everything started and people started forming a line with plates in hand. More and more people got in the line and eventually we opened everything up to start serving people. By the time we started serving there had to be at least 100 people in line, I have only ever saw this happen on TV or in magazines, never personally. There was such a diverse group of people that came to this event. I noticed the way each persons face lit up when they filled their plate with what they were served, even if they did Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 18. Community Service Personal Statement Coming from a non–agricultural background, my lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian has always been a bit harder for me to achieve than for others. However, that has not stopped me from making big leaps to success. Volunteer work and community service have always been of great interest to me. Being able to combine that with agriculture is absolutely thrilling. Within the past four years, I have participated in several community service and volunteer work and activities. During my freshman year, I volunteered to work in the petting zoo and with pony rides at the gibson county fair. I helped hand out feed to kids and showed them all the different species of animals. With the pony rides, we helped children on and off of ponies, who were unable to do so themselves. This is an important part of agriculture. Ponies and petting zoos provide significant income for breeders and farms. My sophomore year I became more involved in FFA. Over the course of the year,...show more content... During the fall, we held a canned food drive. Canned food can be related back to farmers. They grow the food we eat, whether it be canned or from a market. In the spring, we provided the City of Dyer with plants and flowers grown in the greenhouse. Without flowers we wouldn't have bees. Many crops require pollination to help fertilize fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, my senior year I volunteered at a veterinarian office where I was able to job shadow. This was detrimental for my future career. The real experience is something you can't get in mosthigh school classrooms. The vet not only works with dogs and cats but also deals with cows,horses, goats, and other farm animals. Horses can not only be used in the livestock industry for training and competitions but can be used to herd other livestock. Cows, goats, and sheep provide the industry with meat and wool. Agricultural volunteer and community work helps the industry Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 19. What is a Community? Essay example A community is established when more than two people share the same values and through time this personal connection evolves into a fellowship governed by rituals, traditions, and a particular form of communication that when taken together makes a group of individuals whether living in a specific geographical area or connected by ideals so distinct that their distinguishing marks allow them to stand out from among the crowd. They do not just believe in something like an organization but they need each other to survive and thrive. A good example is the Old OrderAmish Mennonite community wherein the community serves as source of identity, strength and provides the reason why they should sustain the community's way of life. It ...show more content... Communities are affected, and in a sense defined by, forces that affect community members and their space. The forces can range from outside organizations such as the government and large corporations ... These components of the community vary infinitely, and thus no two communities are the same; even a given community is not the same over time (Cnaan & Milofsky, p. 1) Based on this definition it is interesting to note that the Old Order Amish Mennoite community satisfies the requirements of place, interests and communion. Aside from being a perfect example of a community the Amish people exemplify what it means to be a part of a community that it is their source of identity, strength, and sustainability. Each individual exists for the community but as a whole the community nurtures each member and therefore it is unthinkable for an Amish man or woman to leave their community behind. On the other hand many Americans feel they must "get involved." In public life as well as in private, we can discern the habits that sustain individualism and commitment as well as what makes them problematic. (Bellah, p.74) For the Amish Mennonite community the purpose of the community is very clear. First, it provides them a sense of identity, not only who they are as of the present but also helps them to trace their origins and the reason for their Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 20. Narrative Essay On Community Service Ana Portillo Professor Russel Whitaker English Composition I November 13th, 2017 Narrative Essay Many teens consider community service a chore to complete in order to graduate or something to include on a college application. Yes, I was one of those teens in my high school years, but because I didn't really know what community service was really about, and I hadn't experienced it until my history class. With this opportunity I was able to experience this wonderful community service taught me more than what I could ever give. When I was in high school I had this history subject in which community service was a requirement to pass the class, because of this we had to complete 18 hours of community service during the semester. To be honest,...show more content... I walked there with three girls named Alicia, Veronica and Karla. They showed me where their beds where and gave me a whole tour around the institution. I was impressed with all the beds they had, it was a huge wide room with many vertically arranged beds for each and every one of them. I started on cleaning and washing all the bed quilts, and all the girls were willing to help within everything, I didn't feel it was a job. They all seemed so cheerful and happy because somebody came to help them. Though, I was the one who got out learning things I hardly knew about. They all looked so mature to me, but I only could see a little girl from the outside. Then, I saw from across the room a very shy and quite little girl, she barely talked and interacted with the others. So, I went up to her, and asked her name. "My name is Sofia," she said with tears in her eyes, "What's wrong?", I asked. The other girls told me she had just arrived to the orphanage a few days ago. So, I grabbed her hand and went to the kitchen to give her a sandwich. She was amazed the whole sandwich was just for her, and she couldn't stop thanking me. This shocked me a lot because there are many children out there that don't have a place to stay or anything to eat, while we who have the privilege to have a place to call home, food always on the table, and most importantly a family, we take all that and everybody for granted. We should place more value on all those Get more content on HelpWriting.net
