Presidential Volunteer Service Award

On March 12, 2019, Junior Achievement USA will honor 44 organizations with the 2017-2018 U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Awards (PVSA). The organizations receiving the awards provided Junior Achievement with significant volunteer resources during the 2017-2018 school year. The recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony and, as part of Junior Achievement’s Centennial Celebration, will participate in the ringing of the Closing Bell at the New York Stock Exchange as part of the JA Volunteer Summit, supported by American Express in New York, NY.

History of PVSA

In 2003, President George W. Bush established the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and to encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor individuals who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.
