Barnard's New York City Civic Engagement Program (NYCCEP) is pleased to announce that the college has been named a Certifying Organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. 

As a Certifying Organization for the award, NYCCEP is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the award.  NYCCEP will certify service hours for Barnard students, alumnae, and faculty and staff.  Each award recipient will receive an official President’s Volunteer Service Award lapel pin, a personalized certificate of achievement, and a congratulatory letter from the President of the United States.  Please visit NYCCEP’s website for award requirements and for more information on how to apply for the award.
