Leadership Organizations (LOs) are typically the governing body or headquarters for a company or nonprofit and have multiple sub-organizations, business units or affiliates associated with them. Similar to a Certifying Organization (CO), they must adhere to the program criteria, confirm volunteer eligibility and conduct themselves according the terms and conditions that govern the program. The difference is that Leadership Organizations must commit to recognizing a minimum of 1,000 volunteers each year, agree to central billing and agree to promote the PVSA program through its communications channels. As a benefit, they have the opportunity to customize certificates for internal distribution and use on intranet sites, along with added value opportunities that may arise. Examples of LOs include Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Lockheed Martin Corporation.
