     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.
