    The best part was that you got healthcare covered, and they also gave you a counselor who you could contact about 6 times for free (after that you have to pay). The worst part is that they don't give you anymore benefits than that, lol.

    You get taxed on the Segal Award so it may not be best to spend it all at once! Just something to be mindful about. Also, qualifying for food stamps is considered a "benefit," so that gives you an indication of just how minimal you will be paid. Overall, I would only recommend if you are REALLY, TRULY, passionate about kids or education.

    the health care is pretty good, all vacation days do not affect your stipend pay at all

    There is no benefits besides a 4800 dollar stipend at the end that you can only use to go back to school or towards government loans. they offer healthcare but I had my own so I have no idea how that exactly works.

    Health care is the most basic. Also, it was hard to try to get the day off if you're sick and need to go to the doctor.

    Stipend, not an income. Offer health insurance, employee support programs like for mental health. Eligible for food stamps and low income housing. Education award at completion of service.
