    You do get state healthcare which in my case was better than nothing and I did us it from time to time and it was nice not to have to come out of the pocket.

    Best - health/dental insurance. Worst - the living allowance is really quite small, but then again this is considered national service.

    Free travel, education award, small stipend, and health care.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Reading Corps Literacy Tutor in Santa Cruz, California

    I had the option to use their health insurance. I worked in a classroom, so the time off during school breaks was amazing. Every employee earned an education award at the end of the year to be spent towards school.

    I received tuition assistance, job training and professional development. I think these are the best things that AmeriCorps offer. I received a Seagal Education Award at the end.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Rochester, New York State

    AmeriCorps VISTA healthcare through the IMG allowance plan recently added some vision and dental coverage which has been extremely helpful. It will reimburse you up unto $1,000 for dental and $200 for vision. Reimbursements take forever to process though which can be tough when you are living in a VISTA stipend.

    The best thing is the education stipend and government benefits you receive. It isn't a lot of money but you receive assistance in other ways.
