If you're interested in this opportunity please fill out our interest form so that we can learn more about you and match you to an incoming Atlas Corps Fellow: http://bit.ly/AtlasCorpsVolunteer.
Atlas Corps ( http://atlascorps.org) is an international exchange program for the world's best nonprofit leaders. The Atlas Corps Fellowship is a 6-18 month, direct-service fellowship. In addition to serving at an organization related to their experience, Fellows will learn leadership skills and best practices while networking with skilled nonprofit professionals from around the world.
Atlas Corps is recruiting volunteers to be "Local Ambassadors" to our international Fellows as they arrive every few months. A Local Ambassador is a dedicated friend to one specific Fellow before their arrival and during their stay in the U.S (and hopefully after)! Each Local Ambassador will be paired with an incoming Fellow and will remain with them throughout the year. We ask that Ambassadors check in with their Fellow about once a month via email, phone, meeting for coffee or lunch, etc. Ambassadors can also invite Fellows to events, inform them about life in America, and show them fun things to do in their city. This is a great opportunity to get to know an amazing nonprofit leader from another part of the world and help them to feel at home in a new city.
