Community Service: Every Society’s Need

Volunteerism has been considered as one of the most humble actions that can be taken for the human services. Human beings carry the utmost potential to be benevolent and offer a helping hand to the ones it needs.

Community service is a voluntary work intended to help and benefit others.

It may come as a surprise as to why in spite of being a social animal, we still need a large amount of media to summon the human strength and persuade them in such selfless deeds. Some volunteer statistics described below will help us to get the hands-on picture of the current scenario and the efficacy of this whole discussion, in general:

  • Individuals between the ages of 35 and 54 are the most likely to volunteer their time according to The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • Volunteers under the age of 24 accounts for 22.6% of all volunteers.
  • Women currently volunteer more than men (by about 6% more) according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • Food preparation and distribution was the most reported volunteer activity representing 11.3% in 2015

What adds in for you, by doing community service?

Volunteer work ranges widely and individuals if thinking on the cost-benefit line, can avail several benefits from it:

  • Gaining a new perspective towards the community.
  • Developing skills, leadership, interacting with team members, sharing information, solution orientedness etc. 
  • Builds social connectedness with people of all ages and cultures. 
  • Volunteering is a great way to explore different interests.
  • Networking – getting in touch with individuals of all backgrounds and interests, which might help you out later and thus build more contacts.
