COMMUNITY SERVICE IS IMPORTANT!

New Life Christian Center, 21st Century Community Learning Center provides students with

opportunities to develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Character development is a

very important component of the program. Teaching and conducting community service

provides students with opportunities to become active in the community and positively

contribute to society. Community service enables students to acquire knowledge as well as

provide a service to others that are in need of support. There are multiple benefits and gains from

community service. Some of these benefits are as follows:

1. Psychological benefits: life satisfaction, feeling good about yourself, and decreases stress

and depression.

2. Social benefits: Engages students with the community, creates special bonds with the

population served, as well as increased social responsibility.

3. Cognitive benefits: Helps students enhance their knowledge, earn new experiences, and

develop new skills.

Doing community service not only makes a difference to the organization being served, but also

makes a difference on the students. Also, students develop civic and social responsibility skills

and become more aware of their community needs.
