Battling for this Year’s Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency ‘s (PNVSCA) award, Grant Amoncio is eyeing to receive for the second time the National Outstanding Volunteer Award (NOVA) under the Search for Outstanding Volunteers (SOV). This is part and parcel of the Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award (VLAA) Category which conferred to an individual or organization for consistent and outstanding volunteer service and whose achievement is regarded as an inspiration and role model in the field of volunteerism.
The SOV is a major activity for the celebration of the National Volunteer Month (NVM) every December. It seeks to highlight the exemplary performance and dedication to service of Filipino volunteers in helping people and communities by recognizing the role of volunteerism in development and nation-building.
The program will be spearheaded by the PNVSCA in cooperation with the National Volunteer Month Steering Committee (NVM-SC), the NEDA Regional Offices (NROs), the Regional Planning and Development Office of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (RPDO-ARMM) and the Bureau of Local Government Development of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (BLGD-DILG).
Amoncio’s act of volunteerism tags him as the CMU’s Agent of Change based on PNVSCA qualification standards set forth. This is due to his valuable significant contributions in uplifting the lives of people and communities he has served. Amoncio is an active Gawad Kalinga volunteer and a community leader who has built social consciousness to transform the conditions of the marginalized and vulnerable society as a Filipino Youth. He is an alumnus in the University who graduated with a degree Doctor of Veterinary Medicine last April 2014.
