Sigma Alpha Lambda has a long and proud history of service. Our members are working to meet the needs of their campus and the community by participating in a variety of activities including World AIDS Day, Relay for Life, Up ‘Til Dawn, Ghandi National Day of Service, Special Olympics, Toys for Tots and many others as well as working alongside organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the Ronald McDonald House and Feeding America. In recognition of these outstanding achievements, Sigma Alpha Lambda is proud to be a Certifying Organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a prestigious national honor offered in recognition of volunteer commitment. As such, we are able nominate potential recipients from among our membership and distribute the award to those who meet or exceed the award criteria.
Service hours are not limited to those performed on behalf of Sigma Alpha Lambda. Hours can also be accumulated through work on a variety of projects throughout the year. The only requirement is that the necessary hours be completed within 12 months; recipients can qualify for a new award each year. Information on logging hours is available at the start of each semester.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make to our nation. To learn more visit www.PresidentialServiceAwards.gov.
