About AmeriCorps 
Do you want to help a kid succeed in school? Protect a national forest? Or help a family rebuild their home after a devastating disaster?  When you join AmeriCorps, you use your energy, ideals, and talents to help others. Plus, you’ll earn a living allowance, money for education, learn to be a leader, and gain real job skills.

AmeriCorps funding is made available by the federal agency, AmeriCorps (previously known as the Corporation for National and Community Service) and administered by Volunteer West Virginia. AmeriCorps members are selected and managed by their host organization, and spend a year addressing issues critical to the organization’s mission. Full-time AmeriCorps members serve 35-40 hours per week.​
