The President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is beneficial for students as it provides formal recognition for their commitment to community service. Beyond the award acknowledgment, it encourages a culture of giving back, strengthens college applications, and develops vital soft skills. The PVSA fosters a sense of civic responsibility, building well-rounded individuals who are aware of societal issues. It recognizes the holistic development of students, valuing academic excellence alongside active community contribution. Moreover, the award promotes lifelong philanthropy, instilling a commitment to ongoing positive contributions to society. The PVSA serves as a beacon of hope, illuminating the path for students to make a meaningful impact to our community.

Many of our adult volunteers have students in the district. Some student volunteers have graduated while others are alumni ready to give back to their community. What we all have in common is we love giving back to the schools that have given so much to our students. We are an all volunteer non-profit, so your one or two hours of support helps make our program/event workloads a little lighter. Please add your name on our Volunteer email list and we'll reach out to you. We hope you will say yes!
