Preserve WV AmeriCorps is the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia's (PAWV) statewide national service program bringing 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. PAWV is the leader of a consortium of nonprofit organizations and government agencies that are cultural heritage tourism sites and/or utilize historic preservation to revitalize their communities. AmeriCorps members are placed for a year at consortium sites, which are nonprofit organizations and government agencies across the state that range from museums and archives to Historic Landmarks Commissions and Main Street organizations.

The primary objective of the Preserve WV AmeriCorps 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 four 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; and build sites’ capacity to increase their efficiency, effectiveness, and/or program reach primarily through volunteer management. Members will do specific tasks related to site needs. For complete information about open opportunities, please visit
