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

Pros

I worked in public schools for two terms. My first year, with City of Lakes AmeriCorps, was outstanding! The professional opportunities were limitless and I gained a lot from the Friday trainings. My second year, with Federal Way Public Schools AmerICorps, provided less opportunities for professional growth. Most programs provide you with an amazing network that is tailored to your professional interests. It's a great way to introduce yourself to the working world.

Cons

In some cities, the work stipend is a little difficult to live on. And each program is different, so those thinking of applying to AmeriCorps should be thoughtful about what type of supervision and environment they prefer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow time to hear feedback during the year from your members - don't wait until the end of the term!

    I worked at AmeriCorps part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Varied experiences, exposure to non-linear career paths, and insight into the world of non-profits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cash to be made here, so the $$ for college has to be part of your motivation.
