 President's Service Award

BDPA local chapters and members do more than prepare for successful careers. When it comes to serving the community, BDPA members are on the front lines, pouring thousands of hours into teaching, mentoring and community service.

Officially, BDPA encourages and recognizes these efforts through a variety of programs. The Epsilon Awards program and Chapter of the Year Awards programs are two national programs that recognize our members and chapters.

BDPA and its members will continue to lead the way in this area. We are proud to announce that BDPA has been selected and approved as an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.

The President's Volunteer Service Award is a national award created from the White House. The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard – measured by the number of hours of service over a 12-month period or cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime.

BDPA members are now eligible for this award and can be approved for it via BDPA as their Certifying Organization. Members can begin their pursuit of the award by tracking their volunteer hours online. The hours do not have to be only for volunteer work in support of BDPA; they can be for a wide range of projects and service. However, it is important that BDPA members use BDPA's Record of Service Key, VXF-58493, when identifying their Certifying Organization.
