|The Digital Divide Initiative (DDI) 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.
DDI is one of thousands of organizations that have joined forces to deliver the President’s Volunteer Service Award and honor the volunteers who strengthen our Nation. As a Certifying Organization for the Award, DDI is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the Award.
“We are extremely proud to recognize our most outstanding volunteers with the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Ken Nelson, Director of the Digital Divide Initiative. “DDI volunteers are role models in our community, donating their time, energy and talent to bring us closer together as neighbors and a Nation. The Award is our way of thanking these volunteers and inspiring everyone in our community to make volunteering a central part of their lives.”
The Award is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, a group convened by President Barack Obama, to help foster and encourage a culture of volunteer service and civic participation among Americans.
