The Community Builder is proud to be an Official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA). 

The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor service-minded Americans.
The Community Builder is a dedicated team of ALL volunteers that work together in developing community leadership, strengthening economic stability and bringing awareness about the misconceptions of homelessness.  Goals are achieved by working with community members and stakeholders to organize neighborhood meetings, track community needs and outcomes, and provide support services to disadvantaged families and indivuals who are homeless.   Join us in making all communities, A Place Where Everyone is Welcome.

Volunteering  a Pathway to Employment

Volunteering Increases Likelihood of Finding a Job.  Federal research finds unemployed individuals who volunteer are 27% more likely to find work than non-volunteers.  
 
  • Volunteers without a high school diploma have a 51 percent higher likelihood of finding employment
  • Volunteers living in rural areas have a 55 percent higher likelihood of finding employment
  • CNCS also found that volunteering is associated with an increased likelihood of finding employment for all volunteers regardless of a person’s gender, age, ethnicity, geographical area, or the job market conditions.
  • Consider volunteering while looking for work to build skills and personal networks.
