Presidential Volunteer Service Award
* For PVSA participants, the hours logs for December and January will be due February 8th. Please e-mail all the logs to NSCSatCSUN@gmail.com.*
America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service. Now more than ever, volunteers are renewing their commitment to helping others and making new connections that bring us closer together as families, as neighbors, as communities, and as a Nation.
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.
PVSA at CSUN
For the 2012-2013 academic year, every PVSA participant will have to conduct their initial 25 hours at Unified We Serve events. Participants are more than welcome to do additional hours with NSCS, another organization, or in some other context. Hours will have to be completed by the end of March 2013 in order to receive the award.
NSCS CSUN Chapter’s goal is Gold Status, which means that collectively, the group has to complete over 999 hours of volunteer service. The achieved status is reflected in the color of the pin each participant receives at the award ceremony.
