Atlas Corps is dedicated to providing rising nonprofit leaders with opportunities to obtain additional skills those leaders will require to have an even greater impact.
Atlas Corps does not want to take highly experienced senior-level directors away from the important work they are doing and does not want to recruit students to participate in this program since they may not have enough relevant experience to share with organizations.
Fellows – but not their dependents – receive:
a) Program-related international travel;
b) Program-related domestic travel;
c) Basic health insurance that covers new injuries and illnesses (or funds to purchase basic health insurance);
d) Monthly stipend for basic living expenses in the city where the Fellow is placed (shared housing, food, local transportation, and a phone plan);
e) Documentation (DS-2019) that enables the Fellow to obtain a J-1 visa;
f) Placement with a Host Organization;
g) Participation in the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab (leadership development training series).
