He asked me to take a look at some certificates of English club in the past. In order to help you understand the old ones visually, I also post an image of them in this entry. Here it is:

The certificate does not need that to say you have done something good for an organization or the public. Anyway, it is just my thought and I want to share it with you. I have tried to make some changes for my work and I hope you can give me advice on them. Here they are:
