I worked at AmeriCorps full-time for more than a year

Pros

Fun adventures, making lifetime friends, getting a variety of experiences

Cons

Less leadership as to how to apply experiences to real life

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It will be very challenging as a team leader, less as a staff member. Although there are many trainings discussing how to lead a team, the truth is each team leader should probably design some method of tracking for their member's skills. Many people threw certain skills away or forgot them because they weren't applicable in that moment.

    Pros

    I met so many passionate people who care deeply about resolving pressing social issues. My position allowed me to network and launch into another position aligned with my interests.

    Cons

    My service only lasted for one year, making it difficult to feel settled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AmeriCorps is a national program for service, so I dealt more with management on a local level.
