Summary

Issues in requiring community service for high school graduation are addressed in this document. The debate is not whether community service is valuable, but whether making it mandatory lessens its positive effects. Proponents of mandating student volunteerism argue that it provides a valuable learning experience; gets all students involved; creates school-community links; ensures a wide-ranging service program for each district; and teaches responsibility. Opponents raise the following concerns: cost and adequate resources; liability; evaluation; and the unpopularity of mandates. The elements of a community service action plan, whether voluntary or mandated, are outlined: the orientation program; the action; periodic school supervision; student reflection; and evaluation. Eight stages of community planning are also highlighted. A final consideration is that of the school board member's role. (LMI)
