DataEthics4All Foundation President's Volunteer Service Award Certifying Organization

Our Mission.

The Mission of DataEthics4All Foundation, a Public Benefit Corporation and a Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) Certifying Organization is to Raise the next generation of Ethics 1st Data and AI Champions.

To accomplish our Mission, we have created many leadership and volunteering opportunities for Youth such as participating in  Ethics 1st Data and AI Challenges, starting a DataEthics4All Club, being invited to the AI Youth Council, becoming a STEAM in AI Ambassador.

Volunteer Hours may also be eligible for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (eligibility criteria applies).

Please note that DataEthics4All Foundation only certifies community service hours for its own Programs and if eligible will count those hours towards the Presidential Volunteer Service Award but cannot verify volunteer hours earned through other Organizations.

All Volunteers even those who do not qualify for the PVSA are eligible to earn the DataEthics4All Volunteer Appreciation Certificate and if so will be invited to the Annual DataEthics4All Volunteer Awards Celebration based on the number of hours of their service.

What Our Youth Leaders are Saying.

About PVSA.

DataEthics4All Foundation is a President's Volunteer Service Award Certifying Organization

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.

Led by the Corporation for National and Community Service and managed in partnership with Points of Light, this program allows Certifying Organizations to recognize their most exceptional volunteers.

Certifying Organizations.

A Certifying Organization is an organization that has been granted authority through an application and review process to give out the PVSA to volunteers. Certifying Organizations verify and certify that a volunteer has met the requirements to receive a PVSA within a 12 month period specified by the Certifying Organization. Only Certifying Organizations can certify volunteers’ eligibility for the PVSA and order awards.

DataEthics4All Foundation is a Qualified Certifying Organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award.
