The President's Volunteer Service Award is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging volunteerism through presidential recognition to live a life of service. Your recognition inspires others to take positive action to change the world.

Campus Life is a certifying organization for the National President's Volunteer Service Award and can approve and authorize students to receive this recognition. Any individual, family or group that meets the program’s criteria can receive Presidential recognition for volunteer hours served over a 12-month period or over the course of a lifetime.

Criteria for recognition are:

  • Recipients must be United States citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States.
  • Awards are issued for service hours served within a 12-month time period or over the course of a lifetime.
  • Awards are issued for volunteer service only. Additional levels of participation with the organization, i.e. charitable support, are not a factor considered for the award.
  • Court-ordered community service does not qualify for the award.
  • Awards are issued by approved Certifying Organizations.
  • Service must be with an organization that is legally established in the United States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or one of the territories.
