Corps members are like volunteers of some sort. In reality, they are usually assigned to various work locations by the organization they work with. A good example is the Teach for America corps members, which provides intensive training to members before they begin to teach in various schools, especially schools in low-income districts. Corps members are usually full-time employees of a school, charter organization, or school district. Usually, they do not just teach but may also carry out other objectives within the organization or school they have been assigned to. This period of service contributes to the development and transformation of our communities and develops capacity building, empathy, excellence, and other skills in the corps members.
Corps members must build leadership skills, managerial skills, listening and communication skills, and problem-solving skills. Most corps members earn bachelor's degrees in psychology, political science, and other related fields. You would make an average of $30.68 an hour and $63,821 annually as a corps member.
