    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Saint Paul, Minnesota

    This is a great way to gain experience and figure out what you think of different career may find something you love like I did! The health benefits and education awards are really helpful, even though the living stipend can be hard to live on.

    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.
