Atlas Service Corps, Inc. (Atlas Corps), started in 2006, is an international network of social sector 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.
To address critical social issues, Atlas Corps develops leaders, strengthens organizations and promotes innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled professionals.
Atlas Corps facilitates overseas fellowships for the top global change leaders. They serve at outstanding organizations in the nonprofit, private, and government sectors to address social issues and are enrolled in an ongoing training program (Global Leadership Lab). After 12 to 18 months, they return to their countries and regions to multiply knowledge. They share the skills, effective practices, valuable experiences, and the global network of change makers they gained during the Fellowship.
