The President's
Volunteer Service Award
Economic Opportunity
Volunteers can sign up and register with the PVSA program. Once registered you will have the ability to track your hours and service  you volunteer. It is fun to watch your hours grow towards each milestone award. 
With the highest honor of recognition comes the responsibility of upholding the integrity of the Office of the President of the United States, the PVSA and all your fellow PVSA recipients. As an individual volunteer, you are required to meet the following criteria to receive an award:
Provide services to create economic opportunity for community members struggling financially, including housing assistance, job training and financial literacy.
Encourage and support our nation’s youth to achieve success in the classroom, increase high school graduation rates and improve overall literacy and academic standards.
How it Works/Getting Started
  • 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

How to Apply if You’re a Volunteer
