We invite you to add diversity to your team and build capacity by hosting an international social change leader for 12-18 months!
Atlas Corps connects leading social change organizations with experienced change makers from around the world for a yearlong fellowship designed to strengthen organizations, foster innovation, and develop leaders.
Currently, we seek Host Organizations to interview our amazing candidates for potential engagement four times a year: January, April, July, and October.
Two related missions shape the work of Atlas Corps.
The Mission of Atlas Corps is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations and fostering innovation through an overseas professional fellowship.
The Mission of the U.S. State Department Education and Cultural Exchange is to promote mutual understanding through people-to-people exchanges and to further U.S. foreign policy objectives by engaging international exchange visitors and American communities in a diversity of positive, safe, and enriching educational, cultural and professional exchange programs.
Our Host Organizations play a critical role in helping Atlas Corps to advance both missions by creating opportunities for Fellows to learn U.S. best practices in their professional fields while actively exposing Fellows to American cultural experiences.
Highlights of being involved in the Atlas Corps network:
Engage some of the most talented social change leaders in the world. Atlas Corps Fellows are leaders in their home countries, fluent in English and hold a bachelor’s degree at minimum (65% hold post-grad degrees). They all have 2 to 10 years of professional experience in a variety of skill and issue areas. Last year, more than 10,000 people applied for 90 positions.
Join some of the best organizations in hosting a Fellow. Our Host Organizations include: Ashoka, Acumen, BronxWorks, CARE, Eat Offbeat, Echoing Green, Habitat for Humanity, Heartland Alliance International, IBM, McKinsey, Microsoft, Miriam’s Kitchen, Oxfam, Points of Light, Peace Corps, Teach for All, UNICEF, UN Foundation, United Way, Voice of America, and many more. These forward-thinking organizations have engaged Atlas Corps Fellows as a key component of their talent management strategy to expand capacity in growing areas and diversify their teams with added global perspective.
Streamline recruitment efforts to bring talented, diverse perspective to your team. Atlas Corps coordinates all logistics including initial candidate screen, visas, travel, insurance, stipend disbursement, and professional development. Host Organizations provide a meaningful opportunity for the Fellow to advance their mission and contribute between $37,000-$50,000* in cost share to help cover a portion of the expenses. There is no administrative HR or accounting burden for the organization.
