The Presidential Volunteer Service Award is a national honor recognizing sustained service. VTSeva is an official certifying organization for this program, now in its seventh year. Recipients can receive an official lapel pin, personalized certificate of achievement, and a congratulatory letter from the president. Gold, silver and bronze awards are based on the number of documented volunteer hours served over 12 consecutive months. The following individuals have qualified to receive the President's award.
As a Certifying Organization, we will identify eligible recipients, verify their service hours, and distribute the AWARD to outstanding volunteers. We invite you to apply for this AWARD, if you meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the table below, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage VT Seva volunteers to register at https://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov/register-voand enter Record of Service Key ZGF-44911 to have VT Seva as your Certifying Organization.
Given your ongoing service activities, many of you may already meet the requirements to receive the AWARD. To qualify, volunteers simply submit a record of their service hours to VT Seva, and we verify the service and distribute the AWARD.
For those volunteers who haven't accumulated enough hours of service to be eligible for the AWARD, we encourage you to contact us at to sign up for additional volunteer projects available through our organization.We have ongoing service projects as well as one-time community projects during Earth Day, Cancer Day and Blind Awareness Day. You can participate in these service projects by yourself, with family members, neighbors, or colleagues from work.
