Now the negative side of community service, there are a few negatives to community service time commitment, emotional involvement, and frustration are all things you can get when you're involved in some extra work. Getting emotionally involved can be a problem like when you're helping injured pets, helping nursing homes and even building homes for people. It doesn't seem like such a problem to care for others but when it can carry over to your personal life (livestrong.com). Like with family and friends you can become more and more sad or anxious to continue trying help the community and others that really need your help.
I believe it would beneficial for students to do a certain amount of community service. The reason I believe this is because with such young workers helping in the community like helping when building houses for Habitat for Humanity, or helping rescue animals they can understand difficulties in the community and peak their interests. They can also possibly earn credit or even better may receive scholarships. Although it may not be available in all areas it is still offered in certain areas and groups.
