We know the need to educate our students in the value of community service and becoming active citizens who contribute to their community. Getting involved in volunteering at a young age can set a life-long pattern of advancing the common good. Throughout the year, JoyKids provides opportunities for community service for kids that will expand their social circle, teach them empathy and compassion, and increase their chances of success in life.
Children who get involved in volunteering and other civic-minded initiatives learn the value of giving back early on. Community service for kids establishes positive habits that can stay with them for life.
Community service engages children in active learning, requiring students to take action. It also helps children understand what it means to be part of a community, how to be good citizens in a democracy and instils an ethic of service.
