The specific area in AmeriCorps that you serve in will have varying experiences. I served in AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps)in the North Central region (Vinton, IA) and to be honest the experience was pretty much exactly as it was laid out in its description on the main website. You will travel the country doing a multitude of service projects for about 10 months with a bunch of other young adults ages 18-24. The projects were all interesting and eye opening for different reasons and each one carried its own challenges. The things that the website's description doesn't talk too much about is how difficult it will be completely changing your lifestyle for 10 months. This is definitely implied within the website but it could have been touched on with more detail. It was a massive shock when I had to do things as a team with people who didn't have any discipline when it came to the basics of living without your parents.

My experience with AmeriCorps has been one of great growth. I have been in this program for three years, and was selected to help GRAD Cincinnati as their AmeriCorps VISTA (GRAD is a nonprofit that centers to help high school students get ready for their pathway of choice (college, career, military, or trade school)). This program has exposed me to different schools, and each school has a different learning environment for its students. I have learned to locate the students needs and understand what I can do to help them in their environment. I have done research on how to help students with their GPA, ACT scores, and FAFSA/Scholarship needs. I was given training on how to understand the environment I am helping, how to gain volunteers (volunteer mobilization) and grant writing to help the nonprofit I serve gain good capacity building and sustainability. I am confident that the skills I have learned while serving in AmeriCorps has helped me become a better professional.
I highly enjoyed my experience, great professional development! I was able to attend several conferences during my time as an Americorps member. In addition I worked with other members and supervisors who had a ton more experience in the field than I do. I learned so much from them including grand writing skills, leadership skills, presentation skills, organizational skills, and more. I will be forever grateful for this position.
