An initiative of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation
Individuals, Families and Students are Encouraged to Participate
Currently many individuals serve in regular volunteer capacities.
We want to recognize your commitment and outstanding service
to the community. We encourage everyone to become involved
with charitable, service and civic organizations. To earn an award,
individuals, families and groups are encouraged to record their
volunteer activities served through the PVSA registration page.
The program provides a simple web-based method for indivduals
to record and measure their ongoing volunteer efforts.
Recipients must be a United States citizen or a lawfully admitted permanent resident of the United States.
Awards are issued for service hours served within a 12-month time period or over the course of a lifetime.
Awards are issued for volunteer service only. Additional levels of participation with the organization (i.e. charitable support) are not a factor considered for the award.
Court-ordered community service does not qualify for the award.
Awards are issued by approved Certifying Organizations.
Service must be with an organization that is legally established in the United States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or one of the territories.

Presidential recognition sets you apart from your peers. It is a tremendous honor. Even though you may not seek recognition, your example can deliver a powerful message that encourages others to take action.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes United States citizens and lawfully admitted, permanent residents of the United States who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime.
