President’s Volunteer Service Award
The Wolfington Center at Cabrini University is a certifying organization of the President’s Volunteer Service Award- an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service and administered by Points of Light.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) program is a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. Recognizing volunteers encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation and inspires others to make service a central part of their lives. This prestigious recognition of student service is another way Cabrini University advances a culture of civic engagement. This is a great way to certify and further recognize the community work you may already be doing through your club, at home, on your athletic team, or through your classes.
