Presidential Award


The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program,

encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.

America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service.

Now, more than ever, volunteers are renewing their commitment to help others and making new connections that bring us closer together as families, as neighbors, as communities and as a nation.

Recognizing and honoring volunteers sets a standard for service, encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation and inspires other to make service a central part of their lives.  The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes United States citizens and lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period, or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime.

The WBMSO is proud to be a certifying organization.  As a certifying organization, we are able to help individual organizations recognize and honor the volunteers that serve in their dedicated causes on a national level.
