1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Should teenagers be forced to do voluntary work? (5E Tse Ying Yin, Sunny)

In my opinion, I prefer teenagers to do more voluntary work because it is a great experience for students and teenagers.

Moreover, doing voluntary work can let us discover and understand ourselves more. It inspires our sense of belongingness and responsibility. Furthermore, voluntary work can generate teenagers’ awareness of the underprivileged. They would know more about the situations of the grassroot class. Teenagers can show more concern about the social problems.

Apart from this, voluntary work should not be forced. Because ‘forced’ and ‘voluntary’ contradict with each other. If teenagers do not do this from their true heart, it is meaningless. Schools can’t ‘forced’ students to do voluntary work, yet schools should advocate students to do so.

To me, everyone, not only students, should do voluntary work. Voluntary work experience could make us be kind and mature. To sum up, schools should provide more chances to students to join these voluntary work but not force them to do so.
