52nd Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon

 

The Junior League of San Jose (JLSJ) is excited to host the 52nd Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon on Friday, April 23, 2021. This year’s celebration will be held virtually, with a theme of Resilience Through Volunteerism. The Volunteer Recognition Luncheon (VRL) celebrates voluntarism while recognizing individuals in our community who have generously given their time, energy, and skills to improve the lives of others. 

We invite you to nominate up to three (3) individuals who have made a positive impact on your school, agency, or organization. A panel of judges will consider the following factors in selecting outstanding volunteers:  

  • TIME AND IMPACT
  • INITIATIVE 
  • CREATIVITY
  • LEADERSHIP
  • EFFECTIVENESS
  • OVERALL ACTIVITIES 

SUBMIT A NOMINATION! 

All Nominees will be recognized at VRL and will receive a “Certificate of Appreciation.” Ten of the nominees will receive special recognition for their outstanding volunteer efforts and be recognized at the event with a professionally produced video, personal gift, and a $500 stipend for their nominating agency. In addition, one individual will be honored with the “Voluntarism at its Best” award, and his or her nominating agency will receive an additional $1,000 stipend.

To be eligible, nominees must have volunteered at an organization with a 501(c)3 non-profit designation in Santa Clara County as an unpaid volunteer. JLSJ Members and their immediate family are ineligible for nomination.

We encourage you, or someone in your organization with a passion to convey the inspiring story about one or more of your volunteers, to submit up to three (3) nominations.
