2015 Certificate Code: 395c028a-02de-489-93ac-2abaf00516e6
TWRC Wildlife Center is proud to be a certifying organization approved to review and verify volunteer hours, nominate eligible volunteers, and distribute the President’s Volunteer Service Awards (PVSA) to eligible volunteers.
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 Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
Certifying Your Hours
To be eligible to receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award, applicants’ service hours must be confirmed by a registered Certifying Organization.
Although it is our pleasure to offer these awards, the awards are not free to the certifying organization. Therefore, if your hours are not volunteered at TWRC Wildlife Center or completed on behalf of TWRC Wildlife Center, please email [email protected] to discuss.
You can participate in service projects by yourself, with family members, neighbors, or colleagues from work. In fact, service hours can be accumulated through work on a variety of projects throughout the year. The only requirement is that the hours for a particular award be completed within 12 months. Past award recipients can qualify for a new award.
Award recipients can select from the following or a combination thereof:
- A personalized certificate of achievement and congratulatory letter from the President of the United States
- An official President’s Volunteer Service Award lapel pin
- An official President’s Volunteer Service Award coin
- An official President’s Volunteer Service Award medallion
- A pin or Coin or Medallion package which includes the certificate and the President’s letter
There are three levels (Individual, Groups, or Lifetime) of the Awardvarying by hours of service which must be completed within a 12-month period
