Having to provide excuses for time off. We're adults and we should be able to just announce an absence, not have to back it up with more information.
The benefits AmeriCorps provides are few and far between, but you do receive health insurance and a Education Award at the end of your service term.
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.
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.
The flexible schedule has been the best benifit
There weren't any benefits offered. You do however qualify for foodstamps.
Many of the AmeriCorps programs offer living stipends followed by an educational award on completing of the program.
