My Time as an AmeriCorps Member

AmeriCorps Member (Former Employee)

Pros- Serving your community
- Doing necessary but hard work
- Working with others who also wanted to make the community a better place
- Education award

Cons- The stipend is extremely small, so if you're working in a metro city like NYC, it may be difficult to find affordable housing

Advice to Senior ManagementMy time at AmeriCorps was really fulfilling, but if someone is solely doing the work for the education award, then you might not take as much from the experience because it is lots of work with little pay. I would suggest to management to increase the stipend for individuals living in cities with a higher cost of living.
