Atlas Corps & CIPE think tanks LINKS fellowship was the impulse I needed as a researcher in a think tank in Kyiv, Ukraine.

The 6-month-long visiting fellowship in one of the top U.S. think tanks (the Heritage Foundation) gave me what I aimed for and more: knowledge of how a modern think tank works, how the research is efficiently connected with communications and community outreach, and a dynamic network of professional contacts. Also, I was able to contribute to bridging the informational gap between the USA and Ukraine by speaking and writing about economic and political developments in my home country.

I recommend Atlas Corps service for young professionals who are looking for fresh ideas, world-class experience, and personal development in a culturally diverse setting.

It is a traditional thought that too many cooks spoil the broth. To have an idea where leaders are invited from across the world to serve is innovative but risky. Atlas corps succeeds tremendously in containing their energies and still getting the work done. It is like a parliament or senate where everyone is learning to be president. Unusual but awesome.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A more honest and genuine effort of feedback and do something about it is what will make them better.
