Atlas Corps addresses the lack of adequate training and collaboration that plagues 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 "the developing world." To overcome these challenges, Atlas Corps pioneered a multilateral exchange model that empowers individuals while building the capacity of organizations in the USA and abroad.
Atlas Corps empowers individuals and organizations. Through our leadership development program for nonprofit leaders, individuals from around the world volunteer in the U.S., learn new skills, share their perspectives, and then return home empowered to address critical issues.
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, 50 international leaders each year from 25 unique countries who serve at 40 different organizations.
The Fellowship is the most intense experience I have ever had. The challenging work is complemented by the deep sense of fulfillment that comes with having achieved... I will always remain thankful! - Dipanwita Das, India, Atlas Corps Class 11
