To earn the President’s Volunteer Service Award, students need to complete at least 100 CSLV-approved hours of community service between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019.

To get hours tracked by the CSLV, students must submit a Request for Service Project Approval. Once the project has been approved, the CSLV enters hours into its service database.

The CSLV will track all approved project hours for all students, including those who are not working toward the service award.
