Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Young people nowadays do not give enough time to helping their communities. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

In this day and age, when the world is advancing at a very fast rate, it is very difficult for young people to manage everything at a time. From my point of view, this is why the younger generation currently does not spend sufficient time helping their communities. Therefore, I agree with the idea that the youth do not allocate enough time assisting (aiding) their communities because they are engaged in studies. What is more, they are also busy shaping their career and spending more moments on entertainment (leisure). First of all, young people spend a lot of time in order to be well educated. In fact, they miss their opportunity to help in their local communities. For instance, the overwhelming majority of young people are studying not only at colleges or universities, but also take private classes to be more specialized in their favorite subjects. Hence, they spend most of the time studying and do not give enough time for assisting communities. In addition, young people do not give enough time to help their communities because they have to work. For example, they have to work five days a week, eight hours per day. Most of the time, they spend in their company. When they return home, they will be very tired and they have to go to work tomorrow. Thus, due to job responsibilities, young people cannot have enough time to help communities. Last but not least, modern generations have a lot of interesting (appealing) entertainments. It goes without saying that they prefer to take part in some activities after classes. To illustrate these enjoyable activities are more attractive after a hard-working day. In other words, young people give their preference to being engaged in more interesting events rather than fulfilling something in token of their communities. To sum up we can come to the conclusion that young people don’t spend enough time in order to assist their communities, since they are busy studying and working, let alone enjoyable activities.
