I have been working at AmeriCorps as a contractor

Pros

As a Team Leader, learning how to lead, manage, and work effectively between organizations has been a wonderful opportunity.

This is a full-immersion, full-time, 10 month program.

Cons

It's difficult and isn't for everybody. The cons are things you work through and overcome. There is a great support system here.

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

    Pros

    Great experience, interesting people, a wide variety of work to build new and different skill, a chance to really get out of your comfort zone and explore new aspects and cultures of the US and disaster preparation and recovery.

    Cons

    Possible conflicting personalities within the team, some may not be use to living off a budget and or stipend, can be a bit difficult to secure a position for more than one term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As always more preparation and research into projects and sponsors beforehand is always appreciated.
