This component of the program emphasizes empathy and good nature and encourages that the treatment of all people be decent and dignified. The benefits of volunteering have been researched extensively over the years, and compiled results show that youth benefits are:
• Making and keeping a commitment, including how to be on time and complete assignments.
• Gaining exposure to a variety of settings – hospitals, clinics, schools, volunteer groups, and civic organizations (organizations whose official goal is to improve neighborhoods through volunteer work)
• Working as a team and possibly taking on leadership roles.
