Community service

Community service

Community service is work without payment for the benefit of local communities. It may be performed voluntarily, may be required by government instead of military service or may be required by courts instead of other forms of punishment, such as incarceration, fines, or probation.


When performed in return for crime, it may also be referred to as community restitution or community payback.
