The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation (the President’s Council) was established in 2003 to recognize volunteers' valuable contributions to our communities and encourage more people to serve.
The President’s Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program to thank and honor Americans who inspire others to engage in volunteer service through their demonstrated commitment and example. We are honored to have been accepted in 2014 as a Certified Organization for the program and proud to have had awarded 217 awards since then.
