I have been working at AmeriCorps as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

The volunteers I work with and manage are a pleasure and joy to be around.
The children clients in the mentoring program that my host site organization is affiliated with are great to be around.

Cons

Monthly stipend sometimes just isn't enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More funding to increase monthly stipend.
Possibly provide transportation reimbursement for those who qualify (reimburse for half of a monthly Metrocard).

    Pros

    Americorps provides skills and training for young people ages 18-25. Americorps is an excellent choice for someone right out of highschool, looking for an experience before college.

    Cons

    There is a 1 year commitment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more individual/specific training for each project.
