P.S. A bit of information to about Atlas Corps: Atlas Corps is a White House-endorsed, professional exchange program that engages emerging global leaders committed to the nonprofit sector in 6 to 18 month professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global change makers. Fellows are leaders in their home countries with 2 to 10 years or professional experience; they speak fluent English, and most hold post-graduate degrees. Atlas Corps takes care of all logistics such as flights, taxes, health coverage, visa, etc., and the Host Organization contributes a cost share that covers a portion of program expenses.
