Community Service Awards

Established in 1993, the NYSUT Community Service Awards were created to recognize individuals who have given outstanding volunteer service to their communities. Since its inception, hundreds of NYSUT members have been nominated by their locals or retiree councils to receive this award.

In addition, NYSUT created a Local Community Service Award to recognize a local's collective and sustained contribution to community service.

Finally, NYSUT established the Life Line Honor Roll, which recognizes the brave efforts of our members who risked their own safety and life to secure the safety of another.
