Schools have always offered students three types of after-school activities. But due to recent limited budgets, they can only support one kind of activities. Which one would you choose? Why? 1. Sports 2. Arts 3. Volunteering (eg. for the community)
On a more practical note, volunteering experiences will boost a student’ resume. Employers like seeing that the student volunteered his or her time; it shows that he or she is able to manage time well enough to take on an unpaid position. Volunteerism also suggests that the candidate is a team player, a quality that many employers will look for in potential hires. Indeed, students may find in volunteering opportunities for a future career path. By volunteering students can try out different careers, and have first-hand experience of certain sectors.
