Friends of National Service Awards 2022

We invite you to the annual Friends of National Service Awards in Washington, DC!


The Friends of National Service Awards brings the national service community together to recognize leaders who have contributed in building a culture of citizenship, service and responsibility within America. 

Over the years, this event has honored over 150 distinguished leaders in government, business, philanthropy and journalism. The honorees are selected for their work in helping to raise public awareness of national service and for elevating service as a solution to some of the nation’s most pressing challenges.

This year, the Friends of National Service Awards are in a new venue and seats are limited. We highly recommend that you register early to secure your seat. Registration will close on May 27th or when capacity is reached.
