HistoriCorps is a national initiative engaging volunteer workforces in historic preservation projects on public and publicly accessible lands. HistoriCorps is based in the Rocky Mountain region and from there is able to coordinate and instruct projects throughout the United States. Volunteers and students work with trades specialists including logworkers, masons, window restorers, roofers, and solar energy technicians to preserve historic resources on and near public lands. We optimize teaching and learning opportunities for volunteer work crews. Over the course of a weekend, week or summer volunteers have the opportunity to gain many valuable trades skills that they can apply to their personal and professional lives.
There is no fee to participate in a HistoriCorps project. However, travel to a project is the responsibility of the volunteer. PAWV sponsored all the travel for the 3 AmeriCorps participants. We rely on memberships and donations to pay for these travel costs. If you are interested in donating to PAWV, you can do so HERE through our PayPal page.
