Applicants Sought for 13 Preserve WV AmeriCorps Openings Across West Virginia

The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia is seeking applications for 13 paid AmeriCorps National Service opportunities with its Preserve WV AmeriCorps Team. AmeriCorps members serve for one-year terms in either full-time or half-time positions with a non-profit or public agency where they will complete special projects related to historic preservation, public history, and community development. In return they earn an annual stipend and money for college in the form of a Segal Education Award and up to two tuition waivers specifically for West Virginia colleges or universities. The Alliance is currently recruiting for all openings to begin on September 3, 2024.

Created in 2013, Preserve WV AmeriCorps is the statewide national service initiative where AmeriCorps members help main streets thrive, capture local history, and preserve beloved West Virginia history. Preserve WV AmeriCorps members serve directly with rural grassroots organizations and public agencies charged with preserving West Virginia history. Members’ service is site-dependent but generally involves historic preservation, communications, educational outreach, and volunteer management. The primary goal of this program is to build efficient, effective, and sustainable organizations working to improve economic, social, and cultural opportunities in West Virginia.

Individuals serving as full-time AmeriCorps will serve 35-40 hours per week and earn an annual stipend of $22,000, while half-time AmeriCorps will serve 15-20 hours per week and earn an annual stipend of $11,000. Health insurance and childcare subsidies are offered to qualifying full-time AmeriCorps. Current openings for which the Alliance is recruiting include:

- Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex, Moundsville 

- The Great Bend Museum, Ravenswood 

- Greenbrier Historical Society, Lewisburg 

- Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission, Charles Town 

- Monongahela National Forest Heritage Program, Elkins 

- Northern Appalachian Coal Mining Heritage Area, Fairmont 

- National Coal Heritage Area, Mt. Hope & Oak Hill 

- Ravenswood Historic Landmarks Commission, Ravenswood 

- Rivers to Ridges Heritage Trail, Point Pleasant

- World Scouting Museum, Charleston 

Note that some locations have more than one opportunity available. To read full service descriptions and to learn how to apply for the AmeriCorps openings, visit https://www.pawv.org/openslots.html

The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia is the foremost statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to historic preservation. Its Preserve WV AmeriCorps program receives support from AmeriCorps, a federal agency, and Volunteer West Virginia - the state’s commission for national and community service. The Alliance is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
