President’s Volunteer Service Award
In 2011, Humanity Road, announced it has teamed with the White House to become a Certifying Organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national program recognizing those who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. Through their demonstrated commitment and example, volunteers inspire others to engage in volunteer service. Recognizing and honoring volunteers sets a standard for service, encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation and inspires other to make service a central part of their lives. The Presidential Service Medals are awarded by hours of service for the calendar year.
