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

    Pros

    As a volunteer coordinator I was able to create my own projects in the schools I worked with. I planned family nights, tutored and created different outings and events for the students. There were lots of opportunities for me to network with other AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps alum. I had a lot of flexibility in my hours

    Cons

    The program I worked under had a lot of turnover in upper management, at times they were disorganized and at worst ineffective. There didn't seem to be a lot of room for career growth where I worked.

    Advice to Management

    Provide AmeriCorps members with professional development opportunities.
