Preserve WV AmeriCorps Program Opportunities

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. Wheeling Heritage is a proud partner of the PAWV and has sponsored several AmeriCorps members to support our mission to be a catalyst for the revitalization of Wheeling.

Wheeling Heritage’s AmeriCorps member will develop research-based, historical pieces for Articles must meet certain criteria, be rooted in Wheeling’s shared history and culture, foster pride and promote preservation in Wheeling.

Previous AmeriCorps members have conducted surveys of our historic neighborhoods, created walking tours, preserved cemeteries, and contributed content to Weelunk – our online magazine. AmeriCorp members typically begin their service in September and work as full-time members of the team for 12 months.

“Serving as an AmeriCorps at Wheeling Heritage has been a joy. While a year of service is not without its challenges, the historical density of Wheeling makes it easy to write content for Weelunk. There’s always something new to uncover, and many enthusiastic residents that are happy to fill you in on the local lore.”

Kate Wietor, 2021 AmeriCorps Member

During my internship with Wheeling Heritage, I worked on their podcast projects. Through this, I was able to write a series of recap articles for Weelunk and refine my research and writing. It was great to be able to apply these skills in a supportive environment with the help of the Wheeling Heritage team members, and I loved learning more about the history of my own hometown in the process.”

My time spent with Wheeling Heritage allowed me to be hands-on within the community and learn so much about arts programming from the ground up. I now work for the Ohio Citizens for the Arts where I am using the skills I learned at Wheeling Heritage to help with my organization’s rebranding and storytelling.”
