    Pros

    Americorps is a great way to spend a year when you are fresh out of college, but their is no clear room for growth in to the rest of the organization if you want to continue to be involved.

    Cons

    After my first year of service, I was considering a second year, and they were focusing on people who had external financial support, which seemed to undermine the focus.
