Volunteering : PVSA for High School students

Vallalar Tamil School is inviting High School students for Volunteering at our School and earn the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Volunteer students don’t have to be a student at Vallalar Tamil School.

What is President’s Volunteer Service Award?
The President’s Volunteer Service Award is offered by the President of the United States as a civil award to honor dedicated volunteers who offer hours of personal time for helping others through voluntary means. The President’s Volunteer Award was established in 2003 through executive order by then-president George W. Bush. Recipients can be granted the Gold, Silver, or Bronze award depending on how many hours of voluntary service are completed.

What’s the process to get the PVSA?
Vallalar Tamil School is a Certifying Organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Vallalar Tamil School offers High school students the opportunity to earn this award each year. Vallalar Tamil School’s certification year runs July 1st through June 30th.

What are the benefits of PVSA for High School Students?
The PVSA recognizes United States citizens and lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States who have achieved the required number of hours of services over 12 months. Recipients earning this distinction receive a PVSA medallion, a certificate of achievement, and a congratulatory letter from the President of the United States. Awards may be showcased on college applications.

What are the benefits of having PVSA in your college application?
Students College applications will stand out amongst the crowd. The PVSA gives students a unique opportunity to establish themselves as leaders. Whether the student wants to start a club, lead an extracurricular program, or be influential in an esteemed area of research at the College, they will need the ability to connect with and inspire others. Giving up hundreds of hours of one’s personal time to help others for nothing in return is something that certainly demands respect and puts the student on a path to being a college leader.
