    Free telehealth (behavioral or general) services. Some service sites may offer housing or a housing allowance, so look for assignments with those benefits, because it can a make a , world of difference financially. For those thinking of/going to grad school, AmeriCorps helped me gain preferential admission to graduate school and qualify for a special full-tuition merit scholarship. If your graduate school program is public service oriented (public health, public policy, social work, etc.) don't be afraid to ask if they have special scholarships for AmeriCorps members.

    The pay is extremely low, but we all know that going into AmeriCorps service. The health care is equal to what other employees receive, though.

    The free health insurance covers a variety of doctors. There was no co pay for emergency room or doctors visits.

    The benefits were fair only because you clearly knew what you were signing up for. This is not a job to expect world class benefits

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    There are really no benefits. There is barely any lunch breaks and they are frowned upon. There are too many hours. Your work does not always get noticed. You get a stipend not always a full salary.

    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
