Step 1: Connect with a Certifying Organization
The first step in getting a President’s Volunteer Service Award is to connect with an active Certifying Organization. Per our Terms and Conditions, only authorized representatives of Certifying Organizations may pay for and order President’s Volunteer Service Award pieces to recognize volunteers.
If you're currently volunteering in your community, please speak to your volunteer coordinator today to encourage your organization to participate as a Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award. More information is available under the "Get Involved" tab online, and most organizations that are U.S.-based and receive or facilitate volunteer service are eligible to apply. We'd love to work with your organization to recognize the volunteers like you who are central to its mission!

When determining whether a volunteer opportunity is a good fit for your skills and interests, be sure to ask the volunteer coordinator whether they are a Certifying Organization actively participating in PVSA. If they're not, encourage them to apply today.
Step 2: Creating a Volunteer Account
Once you're connected with a Certifying Organization, register here to create your volunteer account to begin tracking your time towards a PVSA.
