Reading Corps: Because AmeriCorps is a volunteer-based organization, instead of receiving an hourly wage, members receive a living allowance for the program year which is divided into even monthly disbursements. The monthly living allowance for the 9-month program year is $675 (450-hour member), $1,025 (675-hour member), or $1,350 (900-hour member). In addition to the monthly living stipend, members that successfully complete their hour commitment and other program requirements will receive an AmeriCorps Education Award.
Early Learning Corps: Early Learning Corps members are considered part of EducatorCorps, which means they are already employed by their site. Therefore, they do not receive a living allowance as they are already receiving payment from their employer for their services. Members that successfully complete their hour commitment and other program requirements will receive an AmeriCorps Education Award.
