I'm not sure. Schools don't need to mandate it, but should strongly encourage kids to volunteer.

No. Students are so busy as it is. Plus, whether to volunteer should be a personal family decision.

No. Because it's not called "volunteering" if you have to do it.

Children who are FORCED to do anything tend to resent. Strong Encouragement should be enough. Children will volunteer in events they are interested in. You just need to be a better salesperson .

Children should learn to respect and value their communities by volunteering. Our children are growing up insensitive to our elderly and most vulnerable. Included in volunteering should be sensitivity and culture awareness training for the adults as well as the children.

Do you allow your children to watch TV or play on the computer before doing their homework?
