Join the Preserve WV AmeriCorps Team

Preserve WV AmeriCorps is the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s statewide national service initiative connecting members with rural grassroots organizations and public agencies charged with preserving West Virginia history. 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. Members’ service is site-dependent but generally lasts for one year and involves tasks related to historic preservation, museum collections management, communications, educational outreach, and volunteer management. There are also opportunities to sharpen your knowledge of hands-on historic trades and learn a new skill during service with Preserve WV. 

Full-time and half-time opportunities are available at locations including Charleston, Huntington, Morgantown, Wheeling, and more communities. Opportunities begin on August 29, 2023. Apply today by emailing your cover letter and resume to info@pawv.org!

Benefits include:

  • STIPEND: Full-time members (1700 hours, approximately 40 hours a week) will receive a $20,000 annual stipend, and Half-time members (900 hours, approximately 20 hours a week) will receive a $10,000 annual stipend, paid in 23 equal installments on the 15th and 30th of each month.  Workers compensation insurance will be provided. Group health insurance is available for full-time members who do not have health insurance or do not qualify for Medicaid. A childcare subsidy is available for qualified full-time members. Unemployment coverage is not included. 
  • EDUCATION AWARD: AmeriCorps members will receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon the successful completion of their term of service, valued at $6,895 for full-time members and $3,447.50 for half-time members.  Members with uncompleted service terms or uncompleted hours, or who have not submitted all required program materials, will not receive an educational award. The educational award can be used for tuition at most colleges, technical, and vocational schools, or for the repayment of qualified, federal student loans. Members 55 or older may choose to transfer their award to a child, stepchild, or grandchild. AmeriCorps members are only allowed to receive educational awards for the equivalent of 2 full-time service terms.
  • AUTOMATIC STUDENT LOAN DEFERMENT & INTEREST PAID: Members’ qualified student loans can be deferred during AmeriCorps service, with the accumulated loan interest paid by AmeriCorps at the end of the deferred period.
  • WV AMERICORPS TUITION & FEE WAIVER:  AmeriCorps members will receive a waiver for one semester’s tuition and fees after successfully completing a service term (or multiple terms combined) of at least 600 hours of service.  AmeriCorps members are eligible for up to 8 semesters of tuition waivers for undergraduate or graduate programs at public colleges and universities in West Virginia. This means that after you have accepted every other form of financial aid available to you (not including loans and work study), the WV AmeriCorps Tuition Waiver can be applied to cover your remaining balance of tuition and fees. You are not required to accept offers of student loans or work study assistance before applying the tuition waiver.
