President’s Service Award
FLREA is a President’s Service Award site.
We accept volunteers of all ages to help us in our civic education initiatives. Through the years, we have given multiple Service Awards to professionals, teachers, and students for their work on behalf of the Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at email@example.com.
About the Award
The President’s Service Award is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation on behalf of the President of the United States to recognize the best in the American spirit, and to encourage all Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service, and civic participation.
There are three levels and four categories of the Award varying by age and hours of service completed within a 12-month period:
Kids (14 and Under)
Bronze 50-74 hours
Silver 75-99 hours
Gold 100+ hours
Bronze 100-174 hours
Silver 175-249 hours
Gold 250+ hours
Adults (26 and Up)
Bronze 100-249 hours
Silver 250-499 hours
Gold 500+ hours
Families and Groups
Bronze 200-499 hours
Silver 500-999 hours
Gold 1,000+ hours
Recipients can earn more than one level of the Award within 12 months. In addition, individuals who complete 4,000 hours or more of volunteer service will be recognized with the President’s Call to Service Award.
All award recipients receive a personalized certificate of achievement, a congratulatory letter fro the President of the United State, a congratulatory letter from the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, and an official President’s Award pin.
To earn an Award, individuals, families, and groups must keep a record of volunteer activities and hours served. Activities may be kept as a diary or calendar, or tracked online with the USA Freedom Corps record of Service, available at www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.
Each volunteer must submit a record of service to a registered Certifying Organization, which will review and verify the record and distribute the Award. Nonprofit, community, and faith-based organizations, businesses, schools and colleges, membership and trade associations, and federal, state, or local government agencies can serve as Certifying Organizations.
While almost all volunteer service contributes to eligibility for the Award, volunteers are encouraged to participate in service that addresses particular areas of need in our Nation. Priority areas include youth achievement, parks and open spaces, healthy communities, public safety, and emergency response. Activities should be unpaid and may not include court ordered community service.
The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation
President George W. Bush created the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation in 2003 to help recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making to our Nation. Chaired by two-time Super Bowl champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Robert Dole and John Glenn serving as honorary co-chairs, the Council includes leaders from government, business, media, entertainment, education, and nonprofit, volunteer service and community organizations.
