Employee Comments

    Current Corps Member in Vicksburg, Mississippi

    for the NCCC program, food, Travel to and from campus (at start and end of term) as well to and from projects as well as housing are 100% covered. However each team is only given $4.75 a day per person for food so budgeting is a must but you can still eat quite nice. A health plan is provided to cover non existing medical expenses and emergency dental only (tooth removal to relieve pain). If you already have insurance your primary has to pay first and americorps provided will cover the rest. only a $5 co pay and prescriptions are covered 100% for generic brand unless only name brand is available. each team gets a 15 pass van to use for travel to and from projects and other uses however you must have 2 people at least to use it and limited to 25 miles from housing location unless higher staff approval has been obtained (up to 100 miles for unit leader and regional director for over 100)

    The best thing about the benefits package was how comprehensive it was. It was incredible.

    Former Employee in Birmingham, Alabama

    Education Award and biweekly stipend

  • Sep 20, 2014
    Former AmeriCorps VISTA in Martinez, California

    A fixed cost of living income paid monthly (part timers get $530/month, full timers around 1,200 a month or so). They have some health care benefits and educational grant (based on hours you worked). Some travel expenses are paid. Overall the pay is even lower than minimum wage so consider your finances before joining.

    10 days personal leave, 10 sick days, 5 emergency days, basic healthcare w/ very low copays, can more easily be eligible for public assistance. Education Award ($5650) or end-of-service stipend ($1500 for VISTAs, $3000 for VISTA Leaders).

    While you are in Americorps NCC you have medical coverage while you are there and if the issue is not related to a previous issue before you were enrolled.
