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.

Yes. AmeriCorps YIS is not an hourly job; it pays via monthly stipend since all YIS positions (e.g. at the Boys and Girls Club, ROOF, Together!, The Family Support Center, etc.) are contracted as volunteer positions at non-profits. Monthly stipend for 2017-2018 year was about $1200 before taxes.
