Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Young people nowadays do not give enough time to helping their communities.
Many people believe in giving back to society. I disagree with this statement that young people don't give enough time to communities. In fact, younger generations are even more excited to volunteer for communities. I believe this for two reasons which are explored in this essay. To begin with, these days the awareness of the communities is more than it had ever been. Due to social media, the reach of these communities has increased compared to what it was earlier. Moreover these days there are communities in colleges with help students volunteer for them. In my college, we had different social clubs and community service clubs. I was part of the Rotaract club for the past four years, which is a community service club. I was able to volunteer for the club as it was part of college and it gave me a sense of satisfaction after contributing to society. This club was specifically for younger people who are under the age of 30. In contrast, people from our parent's generation were not part of such communities when they were younger due to a lack of awareness about these clubs. Secondly, young adults find such groups good for networking and contributing to society. People join these communities and find like-minded people who believe in making the world a better place. As there are different events that have people from different backgrounds coming together for the same purpose, this creates a networking opportunity. For example, I was in the Rotaract club and this club is part of Rotary international. So there are different opportunities for networking as this community hosts district events, country fests and international events. Thus attracting young individuals. To conclude, I believe that young people are more active in helping their communities, as there is much more awareness compared to other generations and they find these communities helpful for networking.
