I worked at AmeriCorps part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours with school and being able to freely work like a teacher with groups of students without restrictions.

Cons

Pay was subpar and we could sometimes be called into action unexpectedly for overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strategically place your mentors and participants in areas of the U.S. that are more in need.

    Former Employee - Volunteer Coordinator

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

    Pros

    As a volunteer coordinator I was able to create my own projects in the schools I worked with. I planned family nights, tutored and created different outings and events for the students. There were lots of opportunities for me to network with other AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps alum. I had a lot of flexibility in my hours

    Cons

    The program I worked under had a lot of turnover in upper management, at times they were disorganized and at worst ineffective. There didn't seem to be a lot of room for career growth where I worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide AmeriCorps members with professional development opportunities.
