The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes students who have achieved the required number of hours of community service over a 12-month calendar year. (January – December). The goal of this program is to encourage students to serve others and to make this service-minded project a central part of their lives. They are rewarded with a pin, a certificate, and a letter signed by the President of the United States for their inspiration to others to participate in volunteer service.

Students will track their own service online at and link this to JFCA for awards at the end of the year.
