What is President’s Volunteer Service Award?
"The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation 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." – Presidential Service Award Web site How do I earn a President’s Volunteer Service Award?
To earn an award, individuals, families, and groups must keep a record of volunteer activities served. Activities may be kept by the Certifying Organization (UTPA) or can be tracked online with the USA Freedom Corps Record of Service at http://www.utpa.edu/utvolunteer/
