Several awards and certificates are available to student volunteers who exemplify exceptional service and commitment to the volunteer program. Listed below are awards you may receive once you have reached a particular milestone in your volunteer path.
100 Hour Pin – awarded after completion of 100 service hours to the program.
200 Hour Pin (gold) – awarded after completion of 200 service hours to the program and completion of 2 special events (i.e. working on one of our “special requests” such as the flu clinic or disaster drill) e-mail notifications of special events are sent weekly via e-mail to all student volunteers.

500 Hour Pin (special pin) – awarded after completion of 500 service hours to the program and completion of 5 special events.
You may request a certificate of completion when you finish your volunteer work (at least 100 hours) and would serve as a record of your hours and certificate for service.
Letters of recommendation are at the discretion of your individual supervisor and may only be requested after completing 100 hours of service. The Volunteer Services Director will personally write a letter of recommendation for any student completing 500 or more volunteer service hours.
You will need to submit a request form in order to receive your certificate of completion or award. The request form can be found here or our forms page located under the Volunteer Resources section of our website. Once the request form is completed, you should e-mail it to Barbara Padlog at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bonus (merit) hours may not be included in actual “service” hours which will be used in awarding certificates/pins/letters. Certificates and awards are explicitly for general student volunteers.
Allow 2-3 weeks for processing.
