    Current Employee - Academic Support in Paterson, NJ

    I have been working at AmeriCorps part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love being an impact to the community. Although many feel differently about working with less privileged. However, I love being an educational support staff and building relationships with the clients I serve.

    Cons

    I wish I was able to live off of the living expense, but unfortunately, its nearly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better options for service members to be able to balance work and llfe while participating in the service commitment.
