BSA Troop 287 is now an official “Certifying Organization” for the President’s Volunteer Service Award!  By accumulating volunteer hours throughout the year you can qualify for this award…it is a great way to build a young person’s resume for school/college/work.

Here’s how to get started:

  1.  Sign up for an account and review the information on the website at http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov/
  2.  In your personal account (once established), enter Record of Service key (“ROS KEY”) NTR-4753 to link your account to BSA Troop 287
  3.  Log your volunteer hours!
  4.  When you accumulate enough hours for an award we’ll see it in the Troop account on the site.  Let a Scoutmaster know and we can validate your hours and get your award.  There is a nominal fee for the award paid directly to PVSA.

For youth a parent will need to verify approval to establish an account (via an e-mail which the system will send you, I believe).

Here are the requirements to earn recognition.
