Global Leadership Adventures Joins with President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to Deliver President’s Volunteer Service Award

San Diego, CA – Global Leadership Adventures today announced it has teamed with the White House to become a Certifying Organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Global Leadership Adventures is one of thousands of organizations that have joined forces to deliver the President’s Volunteer Service Award and honor the volunteers who strengthen our Nation. As a Certifying Organization for the award, Global Leadership Adventures is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the award.

“We are extremely proud to recognize our most outstanding volunteers with the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Andrew H. Motiwalla, Executive Director of Global Leadership Adventures. Volunteers are role models in our community, donating their time, energy and talent to bring us closer together as neighbors and a Nation. The AWARD is our way of thanking these volunteers and inspiring everyone in our community to make volunteering a central part of their lives.”

“Even if you’ve never volunteered before, the President’s Volunteer Service Award is within your reach,” Motiwalla said. “There are so many ways to contribute, and every volunteer hour makes a difference in improving the quality of life for others. We encourage everyone to get involved and to bring along your family, friends and neighbors. Together, we can strengthen America – one hour at a time.”

The AWARD is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, a group convened by President George W. Bush and continued by President Barack Obama to help foster and encourage a culture of volunteer service and civic participation among Americans. Chaired by two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Bob Dole and John Glenn as honorary co-chairs, the Council is composed of leaders in government, media, entertainment, business, education, nonprofit and volunteer service organizations and community volunteering.
