    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    $5,500 education award if you complete your 1-year term. Lots of non-profit experience.

    Cons

    Have to stay full year to get education award, risk with working for a federally funded program, can be treated like an inter, and very low pay. Can't work another job or have any outside income if working for VISTA.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay and more flexibility.


  2. "Compassionate, caring people working for social justice."
