The President?s Volunteer Community Service Program is a national program recognizing
Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. The President Volunteer
Service Award is issued by the President?s Council on Service and Civic Participation on behalf of the
President of the United States to recognize the best in the American spirit, and to encourage all
Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service, and civic participation.
The program recognizes and works with certifying agencies, such as non-profits, community and faith-based organizations,
businesses, schools and colleges, membership and trade associations, and Federal, State, and local
government agencies in order to foster and coordinate volunteerism. To earn an Award, individuals,
families, and groups must keep a record of volunteer activities and hours served. We encourage everyone
to register online to track your volunteer activities with the USA Freedom Corps Record of Service at www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.
