President's Volunteer Service Award

Guidelines for Troop 103 Members

We are proud to announce that the Boy Scout Troop 103  has been approved as a certifying organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. 

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a highly coveted award that recognizes contributions of community service volunteers:  adults and youth, as well as families and groups who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service and civic participation over the course of a 12-month period. To earn an award, volunteers must keep a record of volunteer activities and hours served. You can make a copy of this sample spreadsheet to track your hours and save it in a dedicated folder on Google Drive. When it’s time to apply for an award please share the completed spreadsheet with the Troop 103 PVSA Administrator at admin@troop103losaltos.org along with supporting documentation uploaded in the same folder. 

All hours must be verified on letterhead stationary signed by an authorized representative of the service organization and submitted to us upon completion of the required minimum number of hours of service in a 12 month period. All verifiable service hours must be submitted to the Troop 103 PVSA Administrator. Processing time can take up to 60 days. 

Service hours are earned through a variety of non-profit organizations, including scouting activities.  Other opportunities include volunteer projects through religious organizations, schools, environmental groups, and community outreach programs. Eligibility Requirements can be found HERE.
