Volunteering - it's a good thing!

But not many people see that. As part of the requirements to complete high school here, students must complete 40 hours of community service. Students can start collecting hours the summer before they start grade 9 and must have the 40 hours done before the end of their grade 12 to graduate.
I have heard parents & students griping about having to do this. I think it's great! What a super way to try out different careers, jobs, hobbies without a huge commitment.
There are so, SO many organizations that need help. Why is this a chore?
