The Mayor’s Bluffton Youth Community Service Award Program, created in 2015, recognizes Bluffton students for volunteering at least 50 hours to an area nonprofit organization.

The award program provides high school sophomores and juniors recognition for their volunteerism in the greater Bluffton community. The program is open to all high school sophomores and juniors attending public, private or home school in Bluffton. Volunteer hours must be earned between May 1 and April 30 of each calendar year. 

The three levels of recognition are:

Silver Award: 50 hours of volunteer service

Gold Award: 51-99 hours of volunteer service

Mayor’s Exceptional Service Award: 100 or more hours of volunteer service

Mayor Lisa Sulka will recognize students in May who participated in this program and achieved 50 or more hours.

Each student’s volunteer tracking form is due to the Mayor’s Office no later than April 30. Send tracking forms to the student’s school representative of the program and that representative will forward the forms to Town Hall.

For home schoolers, submit your forms directly to Town Clerk Kimberly Gammon. If you have any questions or need further information, contact Gammon at or call 843-706-4505.
