Collins Hill HS is now a Certifying Organization
June 19, 2011
We are pleased to announce our participation in the President’s
Volunteer Service Award program as a Certifying Organization.
This new Award is a Presidential honor that recognizes the valuable contributions of volunteers nationwide who are answering President George W. Bush’s call to serve others through their current volunteer activities or lifetime service. As a Certifying Organization, we will identify eligible recipients, verify their service hours, and distribute the Award to outstanding volunteers.
Given your ongoing service activities, many of you may already meet the requirements to receive the Award.
To qualify, volunteers simply submit a record of their service hours to Collins Hill High School PTSA, and we verify the service and distribute the Award.
For those volunteers who haven’t accumulated enough hours of service to be eligible for the Award, I encourage you to contact us to sign up for additional volunteer projects available through our organization. We have ongoing service projects as well as one-time community projects though our cluster PTAs. You can participate in these service projects by yourself, with family members, neighbors, or colleagues from work.
Additionally, eligible volunteer service hours are not limited to those performed on behalf of Collins Hill High School PTSA. In fact, service hours can be accumulated through work on a variety of projects throughout the year. The only requirement is that the hours be completed within 12 months; recipients can qualify for a new Award each year.
To be eligible to receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award, Applicants’ service hours must be confirmed by a registered Certifying Organization.
There are three levels of the Award varying by hours of service completed within a 12-month period:
