What are the benefits for volunteering with Lint Center?



  1. For those individuals who volunteer will have an opportunity to interact with some Lint Center mentors.
  2. Mentors are highly regarded individuals who have practitioner oriented experience and who are current and/or former members of the U.S. Intelligence Community. Lint Center Mentors are individuals with expertise and experience in a broad array of our country’s intelligence agencies including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security,  US State Department, and various other organizations including  the Department of Defense.
Presidential Service Award Nomination:  PVSA 


  1. In his 2002 State of the Union address, President George W. Bush issued a challenge to all Americans to make time to help their neighbors, communities, and Nation through service. He created the USA Freedom Corps to help all Americans answer his call to service and help foster a culture of service, citizenship, and responsibility. President Obama has signed a letter of recognition for those qualifying for a presidential service awards. As a result, we are now fulfilling award requests for service hours as indicated here.
  2. Hours spent on this project may be added toward a nomination for the Presidential Service Award. If nominees receive a service award, volunteers will receive 1) An official President’s Volunteer Service Award lapel pin; 2) A personalized certificate of achievement; 3) A congratulatory letter from the President of the United States; 4) A letter from the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, 5) A personal letter of recommendation from the Lint Center for future employers.
