National Volunteer Week / President’s Volunteer Service Award

National Volunteer Week will be celebrated on April 18-24, 2010 with the theme Celebrating People In Action. A signature event of Points of Light Institute, celebrates ordinary people doing extraordinary things to improve communities across the nation.

As I mentioned when I got the partnership approval, that AJD Connection is an official certifying organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. What is this about? A Certifying Organization is entity that is approved to review and verify a volunteer’s hours, and nominate and distribute the President’s Volunteer Service Awards (PVSA). As I moved on towards the path of giving my commitment to helping others and making new connections that bring us closer together as families, as neighbors, as communities, and as a Nation. I am getting ready of embracing volunteers to help in anyway you can and encourage people to serve. More heads can make the world a better place to live!

AJD is also preparing and other youth groups to get involve by volunteering at AJD Angels of Hope Foundation or in the communities not only as a requirements in high school graduation but to prepare themselves in becoming a better person as our new leader for tomorrow.

This is still very new to me but all of us will have the opportunity to work on this as we progress. I have the service key to be used by individual person or family to log the hours you volunteer.
