Sounds like an ill-thought suggestion to gain some publicity. What age are they thinking this is to be done at, 16 or 18? Otherwise I would imagine that would be a form of child labour and so it would be at an age where lots of school leavers or college leavers are wanting to do something with their life and have some sort of plan, sure there are school/college leavers who don't know what they want to do. However, stopping someone from doing what they want to do when they have to chance to, career wise, is quite frankly stupid. Also, many youths already do voluntary work for CV or for their university application to make them stand out, if someone is forced into charity work it would take this away.
