Community service is a donated service or activity that is performed by someone or a group of people for the benefit of the public or its institutions. Performing community service is not the same as volunteering, since it is not always done voluntarily. It may be done for a variety of reasons:

  • governments may require it as a part of citizenship requirements, typically in lieu of military service;
  • courts may demand it in lieu of, or in addition to, other criminal justice sanctions;
  • school may mandate it to meet the requirements of a class, such as in the case of service-learning or to meet the requirements of graduation.
