Volunteering has been the topic of several debates. Many public school systems require students to volunteer in order to graduate. But volunteering is not something one can understand easily without careful programming from the schools or social organizations. We have not paid enough attention to programming service projects for youth, hence the flood of several lackluster students to non-profits to get their service hours done without understanding how to give generously without receiving anything back. Many of us have been through hardships in life. We might not have experienced the same degree of pain, torture, depression and grief. But we all are able to relate our experiences with public service and its targeted receivers. If before we fulfill our “required” service hours, we can each spend a moment to think about the world around us, perhaps, the service hours will not be another deadline.
