This study discusses incentives and disincentives for students to participate in community education for developing their generic skills. In this study, we clarify the followings. 1) Interacting with younger people enhances students’ willingness to participate. 2) The community education was highly evaluated by the higher grade students who participate many times. 3) The issue is securing the time to participate in community education. 4) Lower grade students are not sure of whether they will continue to participate in the future activities because of other reasons such as club activities or studies. Therefore, it is important to create opportunities at an appropriate timing to encourage them to participate in ongoing community education.
