I am very impressed at what Atlas Service Corps is doing and creating social impact to US. I want to fully support this organization and wish to bring more and more global leaders from the world to US!!!
Atlas Corps is the nexus of where talent meets opportunity! In 2008, I served as an Atlas Corps Fellow in Bogota, Colombia. It was an opportunity to share my knowledge and, more importantly, to learn from others. For a mid-career professional, there are not many opportunities for long-term, career-level service. Atlas Corps fills that gap. Now, five years later, I am proud to say that I am part of a growing network of 140 Fellows from 40 countries and more than 15,000 others connected view a virtual network. Atlas Corps breaks down political, geographical, and cultural barriers to network the best talent to solve our world's best social issues. Atlas Corps, thank you for giving me this opportunity!
