ACCOUNTING VALUE ETHICS FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
This community service program intends to introduce high school students to the value ethics of a certified public accountant to aid in their character development. The youth's career aspirations can be viewed as a set of conventions, values, and beliefs (Suchman, 1995) that define this new generation of accountants. In order for high school students to develop their character as future professionals and potential accountants, it becomes essential to highlight the importance of developing their ethical values. The outreach goals of the community service program at Universitas Mercu Buana for these high school students are to enhance their character and attain professional achievement. Students will assist with the execution of the Community Service Program in January-February 2022, which will involve the PPM Team. The activities were conducted with High School Students in the Kembangan area of Jakarta. Online seminars were the form of the activities that were conducted. There were 100 attendees at the event. The event was conducted in a visually appealing and communicative manner. According to the participants, this program is quite valuable because the accounting record material may be presented in simple, easily understood words. The topic discussed by the presenters was digital accounting training for the millennial generation to help them grasp the accounting profession. This program enables participants to understand the significance of digital accounting and the accounting profession in the commercial world.
