The Preserve WV AmeriCorps program is a statewide program administered by Preservation
Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV), the statewide nonprofit organization promoting historic preservation in the Mountain State. The purpose of the Preserve WV AmeriCorps program is to
implement historic preservation and heritage tourism projects throughout West Virginia by way of
historic resource re-use, improvement, development, and interpretation. My service will focus
on economic development through historic resource improvement, nonprofit organizational capacity
building, heritage tourism development, historic preservation, and environmental stewardship.
Volunteer management and community engagement are other important facets of the program.
