    I worked at AmeriCorps part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work above your pay grade--in individual placement, Americorps members often are entrusted with a level of responsibility and control over their domains that is difficult to get right out of college. The educational award is more than I would have paid of my student loans or saved for grad school otherwise.

    Cons

    The pay is abysmal, and your experience is greatly influenced by which agency is in charge of your Americorps program and by which non-profit you're placed with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CNCS: dial back the incentives not to fire Americorps members. As far as I understand, orgs that place Americorps members lose funding if they scale back the number of members they have placed. The result is that people who are basically unemployable get shuttled from one non-profit to the next instead of being fired, and it reflects badly on national service members.
