Great for recent college graduates!

Service-Learning Coordinator (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsI 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
