Join an Ever-Growing Network of Global Changemakers - Apply NOW to Atlas Corps for Sept 2011

Atlas Corps (www.atlascorps.org), started in 2006, is an international network of nonprofit leaders and organizations that promotes innovation, cooperation, and solutions to address the world’s 21st century challenges. Our mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals. Profiled as a “best practice” in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and featured in the Washington Post as a model social entrepreneurship program, Atlas Corps engages leaders committed to the nonprofit sector in 12 to 18 month, professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global changemakers. In March 2011, our network of Fellows will include 75 nonprofit leaders from 23 countries. You can join this inspiring network as an individual or organization. Applications for September 2011 are now being accepted (starting Feb. 15, 2011)!

FOR INDIVIDUALS (interested in serving in the USA or Colombia)

The Atlas Corps Fellowship is a 12-month professional fellowship offered twice a year (March & September). Fellows serve at Host Organizations working on issues that complement their expertise. Fellows learn leadership skills while sharing best practices and supplement daily knowledge with theoretical topics presented in the Atlas Corps Nonprofit Management Series. Atlas Service Corps seeks nonprofit leaders from around the world to apply for a September 2011 Fellowship in the United States and Colombia. Expenses are paid in this prestigious 12-month fellowship program, including a living stipend, health insurance, and training.

Eligibility: 2 or more years of relevant experience in the nonprofit/NGO/social sector; Bachelor's degree or equivalent; English proficiency (oral, writing, reading); 35 years or younger; Applying to volunteer in a country other than where you are from; Commitment to return to your home country after the 12-18 month fellowship.

FOR ORGANIZATIONS (in the USA)

Atlas Corps seeks organizations located in the United States to host nonprofit leaders from overseas in a 12 to 18 month direct service fellowship. All Fellows have 2 to 10 years of experience, bachelors or graduate degrees, and are fluent in English. Host Organizations provide a cost share that supports 65% of the overall Fellowship expenses. Atlas Corps handles all logistics including travel, J-1 visa, health care, living stipend, and orientation. Atlas Corps generally partners with nonprofit organizations, though this opportunity is also open to socially-responsible corporations and government agencies. Currently, Atlas Corps Fellows serve at organizations such as Ashoka, Grameen Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and U.S. Peace Corps.
