Current Employee - Americorps-Vista in Santa Rosa, CA

I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time for more than a year

Pros

Learned a lot of office skills right out of college, also got to have some say in what professional development I wanted.

Cons

Sometimes treated as the help in the office (my specific position within Americorps, may not be universal). VERY low stipend and not allowed to have an additional job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier for us to apply for foodstamps.

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

    Pros

    certain programs, like NCCC provide you with a modest stipend, as well as room and board, and a food allowance. its a wonderful place to meet friends, potiential employers, give back to the community and simply live outside the box.
    Its a very safe program to work with.

    Cons

    The room and board can vary greatly depending on your project, and the food allowance MUST be shared among you and your team.
    The rules imposed all have a purpose, but can be stifling after a while. At times it felt like being at summer camp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be easier on the volunteers if a little more respect was given to them as adults.
