Dear students,

In a nutshell, volunteering means unpaid work to benefit others (family members are not included).  We promote volunteer spirit to benefit others, not just for Award.

  1. Please let us know if you decide to apply PVSA through ANACP as early as possible (important).
  2. CONTACT US OFTEN (phone call, text, WeChat, Email etc). Consider us as your “coach” for volunteering with ANACP and PVSA application. We need to know your progress.
  3. Tasks you can do for ANACP
    • Co-host zoom meetings (recommended). The future zoom meeting information is always posted online, so you can check and arrange your time to attend. These are “easy” volunteer hours you can get. More instruction on co-hosting zoom meeting can be found on this page .
    • Many other tasks including website design/update, membership/database management, annual conference preparation, research projects…
      1. Some training will be need for these tasks. Our training web pages will be updated to show more training videos (coming soon).
      2. If there are tasks you are not able to fulfill on time have any difficulty, there is no problem. As long as you spend some time to try, it also counts as your volunteer work you do. But the key thing is to let us know about it on time, so the work will be carried out by others.

4. Community work

We encourage you volunteer in the community and school to benefit others. ANACP may not able to provide you all the volunteer hours you need for PVSA.

    Please log your time and provide contact in the timesheet provided on the website.

     Estimation of your volunteer hours:

    For example, a 16-year-old (by August 2023 when we are proving the PVSA) will need at least 100 hours to get PVSA Bronze Award which is very good for a full-time student.

    • Some of you have already done 10-20 hours in the past (August-present) working with ANACP, so you will need 80-90 hours for the rest of 11 month, which is ~8 hours per month for your volunteer works with ANACP and your community, meaning 2 hours per week.
    • We often have zoom meetings. If you co-host a zoom meeting with us, that is at least 1.5 hours per meeting per week. 
    • So it is easy if you keep it in mind… do the math, log your time. We unite and help each other.

    For the parents,

    Please applaud for our kids. They are carrying out such a great job on top of their busy school work.  Thank the parents for your support.
