VOLUNTEER CANDIDATES NEEDED

Nominations are now being accepted for the President’s Volunteer Service Awards, PVSA, through United Way of Eastern New Mexico, which recently became a certifying organization for this AmeriCorps volunteer recognition program.

The awards are meant to honor those who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer projects in one twelve-month period.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a great way to shine a spotlight on the impact of volunteering, it can be a boost to a resume or college application, and it inspires others to serve their community! UWENM will be accepting applications for PVSA’s through March 5th with awards to be presented during National Volunteer Week, April 18th – 24th, 2021. Plans are underway to host an awards presentation event, either virtually or in-person, as will be determined based on current COVID-19 mandates.

Volunteers, from the age of five and up, are eligible to be nominated for the award. Awards will be presented based on the amount of hours volunteered in a 12-month consecutive period and that have been certified through United Way of Eastern New Mexico and the Volunteer Action Center. Local agencies, organizations and individuals are encouraged to nominate volunteers for the awards.
