There are a number of ways a service unit can recognize their volunteers! Informal thank-yous and recognitions can be done throughout the year, and official service unit awards, like the Volunteer of Excellence Award, are another great way to show appreciation.
Service units decide on their own timeline to approve and present awards and should also appoint a Recognitions Coordinator who will ensure that volunteers are recognized in their service unit!
Plus don't forget our informal appreciation resources. Troop level awards are also available. Looking for something more? You also can nominate an outstanding volunteer for a National or Council Award.
