The interview process is like any other job, but you will be interviewed both by the site that you will serve at and the umbrella AmeriCorps organization you will serve under. Expect the same interview process that you would applying to a different job.

It depends on the length of time you are serving! If you are serving a 1700 hour position, typically these are 12 month positions, you get ten days of personal leave and ten days of sick leave. Other hour commitments, typically 300, 600, and 900 hour positions, have varying personal and sick leave policies.

Not very often but if you have a higher ranking position than a Corps Member, the possibilities are endless. You can also move in the ranks if you want to.

It is possible but the chances are slim. If he decided to join the program then he will have to live on the campus. Plus he will be doing a lot of traveling that requires him to live in other states. I'm only speaking on behalf of the volunteer portion for this program. I'm not speaking in terms of full or part-time employment that they offer separately.

Be prepared to make almost no money and to sacrifice much of your free time.

First off i would increase the pay. Second i would shorten the hours because i had to do 9 hours a day. That's too much. 8 hours maximum. And i would make sure everyone that participates have guaranteed employment of some sort because trying to find a job afterwards is a headache

With Americorps, you really need to find the right program that will take you. Some programs have cut-off ages, and most make you experience some level of poverty. Americorps is often glorified and romanticized: there are plenty of different ways to get involved with your community that does not make you financially suffer and throw your work/life balance out of whack!

Largely, this depends on the program you are applying for. It is not, however it will benefit you to have previous volunteer experience.
