50 Examples of Community Service

 , updated on
Community service is the process of doing unpaid work that benefits the community where you live. This is commonly applied to volunteer projects and educational programs that involve doing good in the community. Community service is distinct from volunteering because it is sometimes mandated by a court or government program whereby it is not voluntary. In many cases, community service also looks good on a college application to the extent that it can be viewed as an unofficial requirement to get into some programs or institutions. The following are common examples of community service.
