PVSA Information

The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.

Hours are measured over a 12-month period (May 1-mid-April each year) and awards are designated based on cumulative hours. The awards are offered in multiple levels and are designed to recognize each milestone of your service achievement. Levels include bronze, silver, and gold.

Hours by Award




 Kids (5-10)




 Teens (11-15)




At Old Donation School, service is at the heart of our Plan for Continuous Improvement. Each year, it is our goal that the percentage of students in grades (2-5) and (6-8) reporting volunteer hours for community service projects will increase by 10 percentage points or more as measured by data collected through the President's Volunteer Service Award program. Ultimately, we encourage all students to participate.

Students can now start documenting service hours for next school year. Our recognition cycle runs May 1st to mid-April each year. Our goal is to have 25% of the student body of Old Donation School work for the overall benefit of their communities.
