    I worked at AmeriCorps as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    You will gain both valuable skillsets and a large number of contacts that you can reach out to in the future. The ages of members range from just out of high school to much older, and it's always nice to keep tabs on everyone you meet. Also, the nature of the work is very rewarding, something I would consider doing again in the future.

    Cons

    The greatest problem was the erratic number of hours devoted to days. Apart from that, the money wasn't fantastic, but this is a public service opportunity rather than a chance for a large paycheck.
