Unpaid acts of volunteer service benefitting others

In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President’s Volunteer Service Award 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.

Golden Tiger Kung Fu & Extended Learning Academy is a Certifying Organization that is approved to review and verify our active student’s volunteer hours, and nominate and distribute the President’s Volunteer Service Awards.

Golden Tiger Kung Fu & Extended Learning Academy will deliver the President’s Service Award, which recognizes and honors students who have been dedicated to promoting community involvement and work towards issues they are passionate about. The award is divided into different levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level is determined based on the age group and the number of hours you have volunteered.
