Black and White Star in Circle

Los Altos/Los Altos Hills

Joint Volunteer Service Awards

For over 35 years, the Town of Los Altos and the City of Los Altos Hills have held a luncheon to recognize a few select individuals who have provided extraordinary volunteer services in our community. The awardees are selected by a 12 member committee, who are appointed by the two City Councils. 

The 2020 Volunteer Service Awards and Luncheon has been cancelled due to COVID19 concerns.  We look forward to celebrating our volunteers with a luncheon in December 2021.

Please note, the 2021 application process will be open in August 2021.

The cost to attend the luncheon is $40 per person.

The JVAC Committee is thankful to all who have been on the front-line during this pandemic.  



Nominations are solicited from over a hundred local organizations.

From those nominated, 6-10 are selected by the Committee annually.

The criteria for nominating a volunteer is included in the Volunteer Nomination Packet below.
