Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA)
through Or Chadash
Did you know that Or Chadash is a certifying organization of the
Presidential Volunteer Service Award? The
PVSA recognizes U.S. citizens who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period. The awards are offered in multiple levels and include bronze, silver, and gold, based on the number of service hours completed and the age of the volunteer. In order for you or your child to have qualifying hours,
Or Chadash must be the recipient of the volunteer service, or a facilitator of the service. All service must be unpaid, volunteer, and take place within the one year period specified.
The most recent qualifying period just concluded and ran from March 1, 2019 - February 28, 2020. Required documentation of hours needs to be submitted to Cindy Stoter at
by April 10, 2020.
Please reach out to Cindy if you would like more information on how to submit those hours or if have any additional questions.
