Amazing to give back and it was a life-changing experience

Teaching Fellow (Former Employee)
New Haven, CT

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

ProsGive 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
