President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA)
We are a Certifying Organization of the President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA),
Bi-annually in May and November, we will apply and distribute the PVSA to those who meet or exceed the award criteria.
To qualify, volunteers submit a record of their service by clicking here or in the Volunteer Hour Entry under the Members only menu. We will verify the service and distribute the award. Eligible volunteer service hours are not limited to those performed on behalf of Empowering Arts. Service hours can be accumulated through work on a variety of projects throughout the year. The hours must be completed within 12 months. All volunteers are responsible for tracking their own hours.
Support the work
Please help us continue to offer the certification of the PVSA by making a donation to cover shipping costs and processing fees from Points of Light. A donation of $20 for each award helps us to be able to continue to offer this service to the community. You can make a donation by clicking here or Donate now at the top of this page menu.
Congratulations! All of these amazing volunteers are students who have discovered an avenue that allows them to share their joy of music with seniors, children, and the disadvantaged, by performing musical concerts at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and the Blind Children’s Learning Center, Down Syndrome Achievement Center, teaching and mentoring neighboring elementary school students. The audience has limited mobility, based on their acute illness, disability, or advanced age, and would otherwise not have access to live musical performances.
Thank you for your hard work!
