Depending on age and size of involvement, PVSA-seeking individuals are required to meet a minimum requirement of hours. Unitopia’s certified organization status allows us to distribute priceless awards, pins, medallions, and letters signed by the President of the United States at the time of signing.
Unitopia would be nothing without its volunteers. The arms of our organization all depend on volunteers in order to reach hundreds of families across the world. We hope to recognize the efforts of our volunteers and their dedication to our organization!
