    I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Health insurance, meaningful work

    This position included full medical insurance (I can't remember if dental and eye was included). I was placed in an elementary school where I worked as a teaching assistant during the school day and then administered the after-school enrichment program, which consisted of 1 hour of homework followed by activities and athletics.

    Cons

    Stipend, no room for growth, long hours (8-6)

    The stipend given bi-weekly was $1600/month. Post-tax I took home about $680 every 2 weeks. It's not much money, but I knew that going in. This is a 1 or 2-year gig where you'll need to find something else afterward. You don't need a college degree to be considered, so it's something you can do part-time while in school if that's what you're looking for.
