A SURVEY OF ATTITUDES TOWARDS REQUIRED COMMUNITY SERVICE. Research conducted by:. Kate . Crachy. Supervisor: Dr. . Keena. Bradley. University of St. Thomas Houston. ABSTRACT. Attitudes towards community service range from total disinterest to incredibly fulfilling for those who complete it. While compulsory community service often generates unfavorable attitudes in high school students, some students continue to volunteer long after high school graduation. A Likert style survey was created to assess the current attitudes of male high school students as they complete required community service hours. This survey, completed in religion classes at a Catholic high school, recorded the feelings of students spanning all grade levels, providing insight into how current high school males view community service. Results show that attitudes towards required community service become more favorable over time. A reason behind the shift in attitudes could perhaps be due to increased exposure to service as high school progresses, given the compulsory completion of 25 service hours each year a student is enrolled within the high school site. Further research could seek to identify causes for this shift in attitudes, which were outside the scope of this research..
