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 the 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!

If you’re looking for volunteer opportunities near you, please visit:

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.

We apologize that for privacy reasons, we cannot share contact information for Certifying Organization representatives. We are currently exploring the best ways to connect people with Certifying Organizations in search of volunteers like them. Program updates of this kind are shared on our website to keep everyone informed.
