AmeriCorps pays a monthly stipend depending on your service hour contract ( full or part-time ). it's once a month and is very little money for the amount of service you do on a day by day services.

No health insurance unless the organization that your working for does offer it.

Changed my life. I learned so much about myself and really felt like I was making a difference. I learned about time management and patience. Everyday was different and unexpected things happened but I learned to handle it.

I did Americorps because I wanted to find an excuse to get back into school.

The Ed Segal award is $5700 before taxes and a lot of schools are willing to either give full rides or match the scholarship offer per semester.


That's great, BUT throughout the entire year you really don't know what to expect and connecting with youth was great. More often than not I was displaced and put into situations where I was struggling sometimes on how I was going to get my hours.


Its unfair that sometimes there is work and sometimes there isn't and your schedule is ALWAYS fluctuating.
Pros
You get a grant for school and meet amazing people
Cons
Crazy schedule, VERY LOW PAY and there arent any finance courses offered on how to manage a $1400 salary
