Pros

great way to meet interesting people. amazing opportunities to see the other side of America and work to improve it. people usually go straight for peacecorps to make their mark in their world but AmeriCorps gives you an opportunity to help those who are so easily overlooked in your own backyard. so much room for experience and program directors are so focessed on your needs and wants they will happily work with you to make sure you get everything you expected of your service year.

Cons

very small stipend. difficult communication with larger organization for stipend/education award issues. look into your assignment as much as you can before committing, try and speak with the former AmeriCorps member who served there to find out how much of an effect you will have and if it is worth it.

    I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot of office skills right out of college, also got to have some say in what professional development I wanted.

    Cons

    Sometimes treated as the help in the office (my specific position within Americorps, may not be universal). VERY low stipend and not allowed to have an additional job.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for us to apply for foodstamps.
