WELCOME TO WEST VIRGINIA’S PROMISE-THE ALLIANCE FOR YOUTH
Joining forces with AmeriCorps VISTA to support youth development programs in West Virginia. 

Kearneysville, WV, October 5, 2017– West Virginia’s Promise-The Alliance for Youth works with state and local leaders to assist in creating a system of united citizens aiming to fulfill the 5 Promises: Caring adults, Safe places, A healthy start, An effective education, and Opportunities to help others. West Virginia’s Promise-The Alliance for Youth is supported by Volunteer West Virginia the state’s Commission for National and Community Service. 
 “West Virginia’s Promise levels the playing field for all youth in West Virginia. Through our program, we provide the 5 promises to underprivileged youth that would otherwise not have the resources to succeed. This is why I remain dedicated to my work even after a decade of service.” –Pamela Dugan, WV’s Promise State Director 
Organizations working to provide the 5 Promises can receive extra help through West Virginia’s Promise by receiving an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer. VISTA volunteers make a one year, full-time commitment, to serve at their assigned organization. VISTAs provide aid by facilitating tasks such as grant writing, fundraising, community outreach, program development, marketing, etc. Eligible non-profits include local, county, regional, state, federal and tribal governments as well as schools, community colleges and universities.
