Women In Training, Inc. (WIT) is now accepting applications for the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), a prestigious honor bestowed by the President of the United States for outstanding volunteer service in communities throughout the country. 

 

The award is presented by certifying organizations to individuals and groups that have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service in their community over the course of a 12-month period, or a lifetime. As an approved certifying agency for Montgomery and surrounding areas, WIT will assess award eligibility and present the award to honorees during its annual meeting in July. 
 

WIT’s 12-month award cycle will begin April 1 of each year. WIT is currently accepting applications for volunteer service completed between April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024. Applications are due by April 14, 2024.  

 

Awards levels include bronze, silver, gold, and the President’s Lifetime Achievement, based on the number of service hours completed. The President’s Lifetime Achievement Award honors those who have a minimum of 4,000 volunteer hours documented by a certifying organization. Each honoree receives a letter of commendation signed by the President of the United States, and a personalized certificate, official pin, or medallion. 


The President’s Volunteer Service Award was founded in 2003 through an executive order and has continued under each administration to honor the nation’s most exceptional volunteers who devote their time and talents to address some of the country’s toughest challenges. The program is managed by AmeriCorps through a partnership with Points of Light. Certifying organizations have been granted authority to verify a volunteer’s service hours and distribute awards.
