What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Celebrate on 2.12.2014 - Birthday of Scott Beale AND GlobalGiving Bonus Day! We strengthen the global nonprofit sector. The current, dominant model of international development perpetuates social inequality-the "developed world" possesses the resources, staff, and answers to solve problems of "developing world." To overcome these challenges, Atlas Corps pioneered a multilateral exchange model that empowers individuals while building organizational capacity in the USA and abroad.
How will this project solve this problem?
Atlas Corps empowers individuals and organizations. Through our leadership development program, we provide emerging nonprofit leaders from around the world thousands of hours of professional development through full-time service and professional development. Atlas Corps Alumni have returned home to be leaders in nonprofit organizations, government, and social entrepreneurs.
Potential Long Term Impact
We are developing a generation of nonprofit leaders empowered with the skills and networks to tackle the world's biggest challenges. We engage, on average, 75 international leaders each year from 25 unique countries who serve at 50 different organizations.
