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

    Pros

    Was part of the Jumpstart tutoring program. You will get to work with a young child in a low-income school and you have the chance to make a huge difference in their learning experience.

    You can make your entire work-study allotment plus an extra educational grant (I think it's about $1300 or so now).

    Cons

    The curriculum is too structured and doesn't allow the tutors to tailor the program to their group of students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be better if the curriculum started out as it is and became more flexible as the year went on and the tutors become more experienced.
