Explore Outdoor Community Service
by: Jonathon Hardcastle

Whether or not you have ever personally experienced the excitement and fulfillment associated with community service, it is never too late to take it up a notch. Contemporary community service organizations offer to interested individuals the opportunity to service a community through their actions. Ranging from a simple project like a daycare service for young women professionals and their infants, to a more complex one like building the local school facilities of a village in Eastern Africa, community services are part of a global effort to assist another group of people by offering experts advice and the required set of skills.

But community service, apart from it being an alternative sentencing technique used in criminal justice, it can become a wonderful outdoor experience for those who decide to get involved. Today, some examples of community service projects include a school team cleaning the nearest park, a group of volunteers collecting much needed items such as clothes, shoes, bottle tabs and cans, canned food and packaged water for families in distress, volunteering to help the local fire or police department, taking older people out for a walk, arranging and organizing sport games for people with disabilities, or becoming a guide for blind or deaf people. Regardless of the volunteer effort you provide, outdoor community services can help people reach a better standard of living and you can be satisfied for performing something good for yourself as well for your fellow citizens.

Particularly important is outdoor community service that engages youth, often called youth service. Introduced as a methodology to strengthen young peoples' senses on civic engagement issues and nationalism, as well as assist them in meeting their educational, developmental, and social goals, youth outdoor community services are a great tool for contemporary societies to instruct children and infuse basic values. Some schools have gone to the level of requiring youngsters to perform such type of outdoor services so as to be qualified to advance to the next grade or even graduate from high school. Although this practice can become dubious in terms of its final results, its introduction was intended to make community service an effective learning tool and assist younger generations in realizing that great things in life result from a shared vision and the devotion team members experience while focusing on a cause.

If you are considering of what you should be doing with your extra time, try volunteering for an outdoor community service. Apart from helping those less fortunate than yourself, you will be gaining valuable experience and increasing the impact of your role in society. For your kids, consider taking community service to a new height by offering them the opportunity of adventure-based outdoor education and experimental education activities with other urban or rural youth members. Socialization, interaction, exchange and personal development are some of the positive outcomes of such a practice. Do not think it twice. Check your local community service association's projects and enlist yourself and your child. At the end of the day you will be extremely glad you did.
