Wonderful learning experience and a great stepping stone.

New Jersey Watershed Ambassador Program (Former Employee)

ProsGreat way to gain experience after college or high school. Helps pay student loan debt or for continuing education. Lots of opportunities all over the country. Very diverse opportunities.

ConsPeople can have very different experiences based on their specific program. Pay is very little as AmeriCorps is considered a volunteer position. My program did not adjust pay for cost of living. People in southern New Jersey earned the same salary as me while I lived and worked in northern New Jersey where rent was three times more expensive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
