Now, increasingly more people suggest to make non-commercial services a mandatory program. Personally, I agree with the suggestion.

I can’t deny that the program faces some challenges in design and implementation. The program should be both meaningful and attractive for students. So, they may be willing to participate. Achieving both objectives could be a headache for schools. And the security issue of the program is on the top of the list. For example, students may assist in directing traffic. If a car skids around them, they may get injured.

However, the benefits outweigh the challenges. First of all, the program can enrich students’ school life. Most students’ high school life is full of study. If non-commercial services become a subject, students could participate more in social activities such as helping neighbors to find lost dogs. Students may make more friends as well. Meanwhile, social activities provide students with practical experience. For example, as a volunteer, students could practice their spoken English when communicating with foreigners. What’s more, students may develop more comprehensive abilities such as cooperation and organization. Because some non-commercial services require students to work in group. And a well-organized group will help achieve better results.

In conclusion, non-commercial service should be mandatary in high school. Because our objective of education is to equip students with multiple skills rather than to make a machine for study. As for challenges, we could work together to handle them.
