What is the President's Volunteer Service Award?
The President's Volunteer Service Award is a Presidential recognition program for Americans of all ages, who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer service. The program recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard--measured by the number of hours served under a 12 month period of time. This type of recognition is also designed to set a standard for every American--to encourage a sustained commitment to helping others and a lifelong habit of service.
The Wilmington College Center for Service Learning presents this award to students, faculty, and staff who have met the requirements of the program. The award is given based on the service hours logged with the Center for Service Learning.
