Press release from: Global Academy Online, Inc.

/ PR Agency: University Promotion Marketing
Global Academy Online announced today that its non profit Center for Ethics in Free Enterprise (CEFE) has teamed with the White House to become a Certifying Organization for the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD, a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. Established in 2003 by former President George W. Bush to give Presidential recognition to individuals, families and groups who meet requirements for volunteer service as measured by the number of service hours performed over a 12-month period. President Barak Obama’s administration has carried forward the highly successful volunteer Awards Program.

CEFE is one of many organizations that have joined forces to deliver the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD and honor those volunteers who strengthen our Nation. As a Certifying Organization for the AWARD, CEFE is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the AWARD.

“We are extremely proud to recognize outstanding volunteers with the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD,” states, Dr. Fred DiUlus, CEFE’s volunteer Director and CEO of Global Academy Online, Inc. He goes on to say “Volunteers are role models in our communities, donating their time, energy and talent to bring us closer together as neighbors and as a Nation. The AWARD is our way of thanking these volunteers and inspiring everyone in our nation’s communities to make volunteering a central part of their lives.”

Even for those who have never volunteered before, the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD is within their reach, according to DiUlus. “There are so many ways to contribute, and every volunteer hour makes a difference in improving the quality of life for others.” Dr. DiUlus suggests, “We encourage everyone to get involved and to bring along their family, friends and neighbors. Together, we can strengthen America – one hour at a time.”

The AWARD is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, the group that helps foster and encourage a culture of volunteer service and civic participation among Americans. The program is chaired by two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrell Green, with former U.S. Senators Bob Dole and John Glenn as the original honorary co-chairs. The Council is composed of leaders in government, media, entertainment, business, education, nonprofit and volunteer service organizations and community volunteers.

For more information on the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD and to find out how to identify volunteer hours and qualify for consideration of the award, contact the Director of CEFE at www.CEFE.org.
