I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Give back to communities that need it, while having loans deferred after college and also getting a bit extra to start paying them back. You can work anywhere in the country doing almost anything you want, in communities that need it most. Health insurance provided is a big bonus, too.

Cons

The pay is low (less than 20,000) and so you will probably need to find a site that either helps out with food or lodging or both.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more to support your members, with outreach from the top-down (not just through immediate supervisors).
