Chalk Talk: Value of Community Service
Students that participate in community service activities stand to reap a host of long-term benefits. First, volunteerism promotes psychological health. Research shows that doing good for others is good for oneself as well, as it reduces stress and increases positive feelings of self-worth. Second, students who volunteer reap social benefits. By working with their peers to enhance the community, students improve interpersonal skills and expand their social network. Volunteerism also sparks a desire to care for others, leading to stronger ties to the community. Third, by planning and implementing volunteer activities, students acquire advanced critical thinking skills, such as problem solving. These skills are useful in all aspects of life, including in the classroom. Lastly, exposure to volunteer activities promotes civic and social awareness. Students are able to gain a better understanding of the needs of their community, while interacting with people from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
