    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Minnesota Reading Corps full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Working with other tutors and teachers to help close the achievement gap
    - Truly satisfying work
    - Student loan forgiveness (education award of ~$5700 for a full year of service)
    - Comprehensive training, no experience in schools required
    - Healthcare benefits

    Cons

    - The stipend is hard to live on on its own, but it's no different than being in college!
    - Working with elementary students can be exhausting

    Advice to Management

    The orientations and trainings do a nice job of informing tutors of the importance of getting a head start on hours. It is a lot easier to do a few 46 hour weeks early on than doing several 65 hour weeks at the end of the term of service. Cannot emphasize this enough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    First I applied online. Then I had a phone interview where they asked pretty basic questions about who you are, your values, and why you want to spend a year of your life volunteering. Most of the questions were on the online application, so I had already prepared answers for them. I think I had a second interview where I had to read a passage aloud.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about why I considered community service to be important to me.   1 Answer
