Serving the Community from our Hearts

President’s Volunteer Service Award


The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. 

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.

Heart in Motion is a Certifying Organization that is approved to review and verify a volunteer’s hours, and nominate and distribute the President’s Volunteer Service Awards (PVSA).

Heart In Motion will deliver the President’s Service Award, which recognizes and honors students who have been dedicated to promoting community involvement and work towards issues they are passionate about. The award is divided into different levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level is determined based on the age group and the number of hours you have received.
