AmeriCorps Member

Preservation Alliance of WV

Around the state

Full-time & part-time available

Living stipend is roughly $14,000 a year for full-time members, half of that for part-time. AmeriCorps members also receive an education bonus. 


Created in 2013, the Preserve WV AmeriCorps program is the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s statewide national service initiative where members help main streets thrive, help communities capture their local history, and preserve beloved West Virginia landmarks. The Preserve WV AmeriCorps program brings members to sites to implement techniques and theories related to historic preservation, capacity building, and cultural heritage tourism site development to revitalize our local communities and improve our economy. The primary objective of this program is to inject new life into the state’s declining economy by having members complete projects that will attract more private spending to West Virginia’s cultural heritage sites and those sites’ communities. 

The GOALS of Preserve WV are for members to


  • bring local history to life and enhance cultural heritage tourism opportunities​

  • increase visitation at cultural heritage sites

  • preserve historical resources helping transform blighted and underused places into community resources

  • build sites’ capacity to increase their efficiency, effectiveness, and/or program reach primarily through volunteer management.

AmeriCorps service is neither employment nor volunteering; it is a unique, paid, National Service opportunity that is similar to the Peace Corps.  AmeriCorps programs take multiple approaches to improving lives, fostering civic engagement, and addressing critical community needs through direct service. AmeriCorps’ official motto is “Get Things Done.”
