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

Pros

I got to travel for free and was provided uniform. Doing a year of service, I also got to meet a bunch of different and interesting young people from all across the USA. Also, with the nature of NCCC (doing a different project/moving every 2 months) you get to wear a lot of different 'hats' if you are not sure where you see yourself career wise.

Cons

Sometimes the hours were long (because you have 10 months to complete 1700 volunteer hours).

    Pros

    National Volunteerism. Meet people, do good.

    Cons

    Do not come here looking to make money. It's a domestic PeaceCorps, not a fortune500.
