Pros: two meals, decent pay, provide an education award, get to act like a kid again, great resume builder
Cons: early mornings, not enough time
I worked for Americorps through their West Virginia partner, Energy Express. I worked five days a week with this inspirational reading and nutrition program. We provided children from poor or rural communities with two meals a day as well as a day full of fun lessons that correspond with a daily book that we read. We had art, drama, group reading, one-on-one – more... reading, non-competitive recreation, and other fun activities!
Definitely a great experience all around and a very rewarding experience. – less
