Review for Atlas Service Corps, Inc (Atlas Corps), Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ok, so I am a little biased, as the Founder, CEO and on the Board, but I think these reviews are important and I want to briefly, candidly and personally, tell you why I love Atlas Corps. The vision of Atlas Corps is elegant and beautiful - a world where nonprofit leaders cross borders, serve, learn and return home to create a global generation working together to tackle social issues. But we all know vision, rarely lines up with the hard logistics of reality. However, at Atlas Corps, what we have seen in six years, in the realization of this vision beyond our wildest dreams. We have now supported 141 leaders, from 41 different countries. A crazy diverse, insanely talented, community, perhaps family, of nonprofit professionals committed to global service. When the Muslim woman from Pakistan becomes best friends with the Evangelical Christian from Nigeria, when doctors from North Sudan become housemates with environmental workers from South Sudan, when a Mexican peace activist learns from a youth leader from Zimbabwe and Belgium --- this gives me hope for the world. Atlas Corps deserves 6 stars (not 5!) because our Fellows are amazing. We have a ways to go to improve our training program, we make some mistakes, we are not perfect, but our Fellows represent the potential of perfect - a world no longer divided by political, racial or religious lines, but a world united by common values, passion and desire to make a difference. Thank you for your support!
