Re-entry Services Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 30, 2015
It is dicey depending on where you get assigned. I was robbed by a client and decided to leave Americorp VISTA. Instead of receiving my bonus for time spent, I got ignored until the processing deadline passed.
Working for AmeriCorps have been an awarding position. It has allowed me to do what I love and that is teach children to read, write, and learn. The only problem I have with AmeriCorps is that you can only serve for four years. It is a grant funded position by the School Board and this will be my last year doing what I love doing. We do not make much money at all but doing what you love doesn't have to cost a cent. I just admire watching the children grasp like a sponge something you are teaching them and get the biggest smile on their face because they realize they have just done it on their own.
