As a 2021 award recipient, I have recognized the impact that's made of giving of our time, energy, and finances to help others. This is just another way, and the American Martial Arts Alliance Foundation and the American Martial Arts Alliance Institute are committed to making a difference in the world.

Do you know someone that's making a difference with their time and support in your community? Our Awards recognition is not just about martial artists; it's about anyone that's volunteering to make a difference. Click the link below for more information about nominations.

 

What is a Certifying Organization?

A Certifying Organization is an organization that has been granted authority through an application and review process to give out the PVSA to volunteers. Certifying Organizations verify and certify that a volunteer has met the requirements to receive a PVSA within a 12 month period specified by the Certifying Organization. Only Certifying Organizations can certify volunteers’ eligibility for the PVSA and order awards.

 

Volunteer Eligibility

  • United States citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States (i.e., green card holder)

  • Must be at least five years old

  • Completes eligible service within a 12-month period (for annual Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards) and over a lifetime (for Lifetime Achievement Awards)

Eligible Service:

  • Unpaid acts of volunteer service benefitting others

    • Service through National service programs that provide a stipend (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) may count towards the Lifetime Achievement Award, but not for the annual Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards)

    • Travel stipends, transit/parking passes, membership passes, expense reimbursements, and other nominal volunteer support do not impact service eligibility
