    I worked at AmeriCorps

    Pros

    You get a lot of training that will prepare you for another non-profit or government job.

    You also get to have a positive impact in the community you are placed.

    Cons

    AmeriCorps is not easy. You live under the poverty line and really learn to empathize with everyone else who is in the same situation as you, but not by choice.

  2.  

    This is the best place I have worked at. I only wish that there was more opportunity for advancement.
