Classifying Americorps Service - Volunteer/Employment/Compensated?

Recommended Posts

For those of you who have done Americorps service-

How did you list it on your application? Did you list it as volunteer experience or non-health care employment? We were given a living stipend (mine was $4000 for 10 months, plus paid housing and team food budget), but it didn't qualify as meeting minimum wage. I was told during Americorps orientation to not refer to myself as either 'employee' or 'volunteer' and instead call myself a 'member'.  This was for FEMAcorps, not sure if it was true at other programs.
