Atlas Corps is an overseas leadership development program for the world's nonprofit professionals. We place rising nonprofit professionals from around the world in 12-18 month fellowships at organizations in the U.S. and Latin America. 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 has supported 155 leaders from 49 different countries. These Fellows serve overseas to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global changemakers.
Atlas Corps seeks nonprofit leaders from around the world to apply for Fellowships in the U.S. and Latin America. They are particularly interested in rising leaders from Sudan and South Sudan in 2013, but welcome applications from any country. Fellows serve full-time for 12-18 months at Host Organizations such as Ashoka, CARE, the Grameen Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, UNICEF, and the UN Foundation. In addition, Fellows will supplement daily knowledge with theoretical topics presented in the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab and networking with leaders from around the world. This prestigious fellowship includes a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing) and health insurance.
