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

    Pros

    Amazing experience! I met so many great people and learned a lot of valuable skills that can be used in any position.

    Cons

    Living stipend is very meager so you will need to apply for food stamps and possibly have financial support from family (unless your living arrangements are provided).

    Former Employee - Student Mentor in Auburn, WA

    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.
