    Pros

    You'll meet some of the most interesting people from all around the country. They do a really good job of recruiting people.

    Cons

    There's no balance between personal and work life. You'll spend an entire day teaching and tutoring. Then you'll spend the evening grading papers, planning lessons, and calling parents. This movement operates by draining the youth of young optimists; the real issue requires a much bigger overhaul.
