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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    People 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.

    I worked at AmeriCorps

    Pros

    Gave me the opportunity to gain experience in my field as soon as I got out of college.
    Taught me how to live on a tight budget.
    Great support system and benefits along the way.

    Cons

    If you don't have any $ saved up, it can be very stressful and difficult to make it through the year.
