PVSA Certified

Apart But Not Alone is an official Certifying Organization for the
President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA).

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. 

The PVSA has continued under each administration, honoring the volunteers who are using their time and talents to solve some of the toughest challenges facing our nation. This program allows Certifying Organizations to recognize their most exceptional volunteers, and Apart But Alone is proud to be a certifying organization to bestow the PVSA award to qualifying volunteers. 


Apart But Not Alone will be accepting volunteer hours over a 12 month period starting Jun 1st, 2020. To be awarded, these hours must be in relation to partnership with Apart But Not Alone to scale their mindfulness efforts globally.
