West Virginians 18 years or older can now apply for paid positions as AmeriCorps members for the award-winning WVU Extension Service Energy Express program.
The annual initiative is an eight-week reading and nutrition program offered in rural and low-income West Virginia communities. Energy Express helps children entering kindergarten through sixth grade overcome the “summer slide” that occurs when youths fall behind academically during the summers in between school years.
