Community service in Pixelonia serves two purposes: it gives young kids exposure, time to mature, and builds character AND it provides a grand service to the community relatively cheaply.
Community service includes all of the following (and more):
- Trash collection
- Serving in the armed forces
- Being a fluffer
- Nursing in old folk’s homes, insane assylums, etc.
- Serving in homeless shelters
- Sewerage work
- Road work
- Other public works
- Emergency workers
Upon graduation from High School, students are given an examination and a questionnaire. The examination analyses their aptitude for various jobs and the questionnaire their preferrence for these self-same jobs.
Selection is then made by an automated process which attempts to give everyone their choices.
Alternatively, students may submit their own service project to be monitored by a committee. The project shall be judged by expected value and the progress will be monitored by an expert in the area.
