Atlas Corps Fellows, on average, have seven years of social change experience; two-thirds have Master’s Degrees; and they are all fluent in English. The Fellows have a wide range of skills from project management to software engineering, M&E, fundraising, marketing, etc.
Host Organizations complete a position description and Atlas Corps provides five pre-vetted candidates who meet that criteria so that the host can interview and pick their top candidate. Atlas Corps takes care of the visa, living stipend, health insurance, taxes, training, etc., and the host provides a cost share to cover part of the expenses.
