I worked at AmeriCorps part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours with school and being able to freely work like a teacher with groups of students without restrictions.

Cons

Pay was subpar and we could sometimes be called into action unexpectedly for overtime.

Advice to Management

Strategically place your mentors and participants in areas of the U.S. that are more in need.

    I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time

    Pros

    Substantial work building efforts to shift structures of cyclical poverty. Great experience working with impressive non-profits.

    Cons

    Fighting poverty by placing employees in poverty. Inconsideration of time, cost of living, employee benefits. Basically forces you into welfare.

    Advice to Management

    Provide sufficient healthcare.
