    401k (Thrift Savings Plan) options are very good. Upon orientation, you receive a good overview of the available plan and benefits. Leave bank helps with maternity and paternity leave, though you must first exhaust all of your sick leave before dipping into the leave bank.

    This is a noble cause no matter what the pay might be. I never worked directly for AmeriCorps, but I’ve worked alongside them as a paramedic. Very good people

    Because you work for government and pretty much the poverty level, you can apply for medicaid. The monthly stipend is pretty tough. D.C. is pretty expensive. 500-550 a month to live in D.C. is almost crazy if you are living by yourself. Don't expect to hangout or go out with that.

    The best thing is the education award that can be used for past loans or future education expenses! It’s around $5,500 or more as it increases a little bit every year.

    Best thing is that loans are placed on pause during contract. If full-time, you receive 1K a month living stipend with 6K Educational stipend and healthcare benefits. For part-time, it is $500 a month living stipend, with no healthcare benefits and 2K Educational stipend.

    The stipend is small, but housing is typically provided which really helps out. AmeriCorps will also help pay off student loans and tuition.
