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

    Pros

    Great mission and really has a front-line impact on education and the children who need help in reading the most. The schools and communities Reading Partners is in come to view you as one of them and as an integral part to overall student success. Site Coordinators gain great experience managing volunteers, students, and data and independently operating a site.

    Cons

    This is not an entry-level job. You never have only 40-hour weeks and with the AmeriCorps stipend you are pretty much a serf. Unless you are a staff member, there is no opportunity for growth beyond a second year. Could not wait to move onto another opportunity with better pay and opportunities for long-term growth. Often disorganized.
