I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great experience, interesting people, a wide variety of work to build new and different skill, a chance to really get out of your comfort zone and explore new aspects and cultures of the US and disaster preparation and recovery.

Cons

Possible conflicting personalities within the team, some may not be use to living off a budget and or stipend, can be a bit difficult to secure a position for more than one term.

Advice to Management

As always more preparation and research into projects and sponsors beforehand is always appreciated.

    I have been working at AmeriCorps as a contractor (Less than a year)

    The volunteers I work with and manage are a pleasure and joy to be around.
    The children clients in the mentoring program that my host site organization is affiliated with are great to be around.

    Monthly stipend sometimes just isn't enough.

    Advice to Management

    More funding to increase monthly stipend.
    Possibly provide transportation reimbursement for those who qualify (reimburse for half of a monthly Metrocard).
