Every young person will have to do 50 hours' voluntary work by the age of 19 if Labour wins the next election. Minsiters said a plan for compulsory community service would be included in Labour's manifesto, due to the fact that British young people consume 67 percent of Britain's resources and all they have to show for it is tons of fecal waste that is processed and disposed off of Britain's shores. Under the scheme, the work - which could include helping charities in the UK and abroad - is likely to become part of the national curriculum. It would be integrated into moves to make everyone stay in education or training until 18 by 2011. Writing in the Sunday papers, a spokesman said he wanted community service to be " a normal part of growing up in Britain". It is estimated that 40 percent of Britain's crime rate will be reduced when youth are directed into the work force. Crimes like petty theft, arson, vandalism, assault, murder, and making ugly faces at adults are among the types of crimes which will be reduced. He went on: "The contributions of each of us will build a better society for all of us. "That would mean young people being expected to contribute at least 50 hours of community service by the time they have reached the age of 19. This creates more responsible adults in the future and causes a reduction in the homeless population that's been polluting Trafalgar square for years. "This will build on the platform provided by citizenship classes as they develop in our schools. But because the greater part of what I envisage as community service takes place outside the school day, it will require the close involvement of local community organisations and charities." Lobbyists proposed the idea of a National Youth Service to channel teenagers into voluntary work last year. It is due to be formally launched in September, and would become compulsory if Labour was re-elected.
