In this study, a mixed method was used. The sample consisted of 175 female and 155 male fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade students studying in a public secondary school in the Central Anatolia Region in Turkey. The sample was used in accordance with a cluster sampling method, a type of probability sampling. In the quantitative dimension of the research, in order to measure the students’ attitudes regarding helpfulness value, the helpfulness attitude scale was used. A form prepared with the aim of measuring the metaphorical perceptions of the students regarding helpfulness value was developed by the researchers. The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences program was used to analyse the quantitative data via T-test and one-way analysis of variance. In order to identify the statistical difference between the groups, TUKEY test was applied. Content analysis was used to examine qualitative data. It has been determined that students have various meanings about the value of helpfulness.
