The President’s Award for Lifetime Achievement:
The President’s Volunteer Service Award was established in 2003 by the US President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to honor the significant contribution that volunteers make to the strength and identity of the United States.
This awards honours people whose help emphatically influences communities in each edge of the country and moves everyone around them to make a move, as well.
Under each administration, the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) has been given to volunteers who use their time and skills to solve some of its nation’s most difficult problems.
This program, overseen by AmeriCorps and managed in collaboration with Points of Light, enables Certifying Organizations to honor their most outstanding volunteers.
