I have been working at AmeriCorps part-time (More than a year)
You will get to bring happiness and something valuable to people in a community.
You won't make enough to survive on...It's best that you are in school or have another job somewhere else as well.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (New York, NY).
The interview consisted of a three part process. First, a phone screening, followed by a group interview with three people. The final step was a phone call interview with the Executive Director.
