"AmeriCorps is a fantastic way to build career experience as a young professional, a meaningful way to bridge the year between college and graduate school, a solid first job once you graduate, and / or a great way to change careers and try something totally new. It's basically the domestic version of Peace Corps and allows you to give back to your community for a full year while gaining valuable insights into possible career fields that you may want to pursue in the future. For example, I thought I was going to go to law school until I worked for a Legal Aid Society for a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA member. Thanks to that experience, I decided that pursuing public interest law was not for me and instead I focused on a new field -- community economic development -- to have a more macro approach to community building."
