President’s Volunteer Service Award | PVSA

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.

America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service. Now, more than ever, service is necessary to tackle the most pressing issues of our time, and Americans are accepting the challenge. The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes, celebrates and inspires community service leaders and volunteers to lead the charge.


Along with the ultimate honor of presidential recognition, recipients can receive:
– A personalized award certificate
– An official President’s Volunteer Service Award pin, medallion or coin
– A congratulatory letter from the President of the United States
– A combination of all of the above

Hours are measured over a 12-month period and awards are designated based on cumulative hours. The awards are offered in multiple levels and are designed to recognize each milestone of your service achievement. Levels include bronze, silver, gold and the highest honor, the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime.
