What is community Service?

Community service is not the same as volunteer service because it may not be done out of your own will. For instance, a traffic offender may be assigned a community service of road cleaning. He will do the job not necessarily because he wanted to, rather, he does it because he has been assigned to do it by the government authorities.

Community service is a job performed by an individual or group of people for the benefit of the community or its institutions and without any payment.

Volunteer service is any activity that is done out of one's own will and without any form of payment or reward for the benefit of others; not including his family members and relatives. 

Community service may be done around your locality of elsewhere. Schools, Churches, Government, NGO's or even individuals may organize and carry out community service.
