America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service. The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) program is a great way to honor this American tradition and thank those who, by demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
The PVSA recognizes individuals, families, and groups that achieve a certain number of service hours within a 12-month period. The award can also be given for cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime.
Awards are given to youth ages 14 and under who have completed 50 or more hours of volunteer service; to individuals 15 and older who have completed 100 or more hours; and to families or groups who have completed 200 or more hours. Lifetime achievement is recognized with a special President's Call to Service Award, which honors those who have provided more than 4,000 hours of service during the course of their lifetime.
