Atlas Corps presents a huge palette of opportunities for all whom it serves. Expanded perspective, strategic networking, new skills and tactics for operating in the nonprofit sector, plus the mere wonder of experiencing a new cultural are some of the benefits that Fellows are almost guaranteed to derive.

Atlas Corps' approach of bringing Fellows to the US for 12 months of service is a good approach for professionals seeking service at an international level. The fellowship provides an avenue for them to share experiences and learn best practices that will foster great performance during and after the fellowship. It also provides an opportunity for establishing strong networks that benefit both the individual and Atlas Corps or the Host Organization.

Atlas Corps brings together people from different countries with different cultures and language who have one thing in common - their desire to change the world. How unique a group is that? They learn from each other, inspire each other and support each others social impact projects in the years to come...

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.
