WASHINGTON, D.C., March 31, 2009 – The Lint Center, a non-profit charity, focused on supporting the educational pursuits of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, today formally announced that it has been approved as a Certifying Organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. Established in 2003, the Award was created to give Presidential recognition to individuals, families and groups.
The Presidential Volunteer Service Award is a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. The program recognizes volunteer service contributions measured by the number of service hours performed over 12-months.
“The Lint Center is pleased to be a Certifying Organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award,” said Jim Lint, Chairman and CEO of the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “Founded as a Veteran and minority directed charity, we maintain no paid staff and rely exclusively on the volunteer spirit of great Americans. Our focus is to ensure that all donations and contributions are allocated to the Center’s scholarship initiatives. The Center’s team of dedicated volunteers strives to give back a little more each day and strengthen America one volunteered hour after another.”
“The Presidential Volunteer Service Award program will enable the Lint Center to recognize and in some small way, extend this country’s thanks to the Center’s team of unpaid volunteers,” said Anna Hyonjoo, Chief Operations Officer at the Lint Center. “We welcome the Council on Service and Civic Participation’s certification of the Lint Center and believe it further validates the fundamental impact of the Center’s meaningful work.”
