Start An AmeriCorps Program

Each year, Volunteer West Virginia provides funding for organizations to develop AmeriCorps programs in West Virginia. These programs utilize 5+ AmeriCorps Members who can focus on education, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, disaster services, healthy futures, and veterans & military families.​​ Nonprofits, Institutes of Higher Education, Tribes, and Government Agencies are eligible to apply. If you are interested in starting an AmeriCorps Program, please contact americorps@wv.gov​ to schedule a conference call to discuss your ideas, program​ design, and member service activities.

​Host An AmeriCorps Member 

If your organization is interested in hosting one AmeriCorps member, we can help you find a preexisting​ program to partner with. Please contact Dana Bryant to schedule an AmeriCorps consultation. 


Host An AmeriCorps Team 

Teams of AmeriCorps members are also available for short term projects. AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers serve for 3-6 weeks. Teams can clear trails, build homes, spruce up museums, serve youth - and more! No match or cost share required. To learn how to sponsor a team, contact Stephanie Chan
