Today the majority of our youth do not believe volunteering is quite important. They also think that volunteering is for adults, people who do not have anything better to do and those who love doing it. Today’s youth, not all but most, don’t have any sense of performing for others.
Volunteer work is the only way to understand how important it is to help others in need. As childhood might not know, volunteering is a really important part of life.
Volunteering is just that, volunteering, so there’s absolutely no pay involved but the rewards of knowing you might have changed a person’s life that day are all that counts. Students might not be eager to do the work at no cost, but perhaps they would want to know that volunteering makes them a valuable part of their community and it’ll inspire their peers to do the same.
If the youth that happens to volunteer a part of a course, it is possible to give them things to reward to them for all the volunteer work they perform during a particular period of time.
In this manner, they would be open to volunteering and helping others throughout their spare time. The more hours they put in, the more values or points they receive. You may even give out big awards at the end of the school term or year.
It is possible to break off the class into teams or groups. Allow everyone to have their opportunity to rotate tasks amongst the groups so that every student gets a chance to do different things.
Make certain to congratulate your students on the job they do and make it a huge deal for the whole class to find out what their peers do. Constant encouragement is quite important because it is going to make the students want to keep up the fantastic work.
If students that are volunteering has a better grade in course compared to students who do not, this might also be great motivation for different students.
With only a little praise, encouragement and motivation the students will be involved in helping their community and others.
