This article is featured because it provides an example of a real group of younger people actually working to help and actively engaging in helping the world. By providing an actual example and dwelling on that example, it does help convince people that this is actually happening.
In just one high school, nearly 100 students have reported taking part in helping others in their community. Examples ranged from picking up cigarettes, helping underprivileged kids get a good education and learn more, even being on a crisis hotline for other kids their age. Teenagers are really working hard to create a huge positive impact, even when it's in one school alone. Despite all of the horrible things going on in the world today, people still do try and make a difference in their community. This article gives many examples of actual teenagers working hard to improve the community they live in. That really does help get the message across that the authors wanted to share. The fact that real effort was put in to find and talk to these people really helps get a point across, and the variety of the examples makes it interesting and not repetitive.
When a younger person decides to spend their time volunteering and helping out in their community, there are a number of benefits that come along with their decision. It's been proven that when a teenager volunteers for something, they get a number of benefits out of it, such as increased social/communication skills and a higher chance of getting accepted at a college, because their history of volunteering more makes them stand out compared to other applicants. There is also increased self esteem, which adds mental/emotional benefits to the list. Thankfully, nowadays people are beginning to recognize what volunteering can do, and there are more and more younger people participating in voluntary activities. This article was included because stating the benefits of volunteering can really help to prove its point. Thoroughly explaining the outcomes and positives of volunteering could persuade readers to volunteer, or just spread awareness about how it benefits a student.
