The President’s Volunteer Service Award(美國總統志工服務獎)

In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) to recognize the important role of volunteers in America’s strength and national identity. This award honors individuals whose service positively impacts communities in every corner of the nation and inspires those around them to take action, too. The PVSA is awarded to volunteers who have set themselves part from their peers by achieving service milestones in a 12-month period. It is a tremendous honor and allows dedicated volunteers to serve as an example that encourages other to take action. The awards are offered in multiple levels and are designed to recognize each milestone of their service achievements. Levels include bronze, silver, gold.  The recipients will receive medal, certificate, and a congratulation letter from the President.

New Life Christian Alliance Church becomes one of the Certifying Organizations in year 2020.
