    Pros

    Volunteering your time occasionally will make you feel good - immersing yourself as an Americorps volunteer will change your life. If you would like to challenge yourself to see the world from a new perspective and develop strengths you didn't know you had, then Americorps is for you.

    Cons

    I would like to say none because the cons are obvious: little financial gain and short term of service. You must derive satisfaction from the intrinsic value of service rather than financial motivation. Also, your term of service is just that - a term. Service may not lead to a professional position, and again you must be strictly motivated by the intrinsic value of the experience.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your work. Keep it up! Get things done!
