Volunteer on a Presidential Initiative!

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Atlas Corps seeks graduate-level, entrepreneurial-focused volunteers to serve as reviewers and/or interviewers for an exciting Presidential Initiative. Volunteers will collaborate with Atlas Corps on a Presidential and State Department program called the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI).

YLAI Overview: Announced in 2015 by President Obama, YLAI is a collaboration between the State Department, Meridian International, Entrepreneur’s Organization, and Atlas Corps. YLAI will bring 250 young entrepreneurs and civil society leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean to the U.S. on a 5-week fellowship to transform their societies and contribute more fully to economic and social development in their countries.

Volunteer Opportunity: Support YLAI as an Applicant Reviewer. Responsibilities include:

  • Application readers will be responsible for reading and evaluating 30-40 applications over a three-week period in May - June 2016

  • Applicant interviewers will be responsible for interviewing (remotely) and evaluating 20-25 semifinalists over a two week period in June - July 2016

  • You can do either activity or both!

    Note: All opportunities are virtual and adaptable to each individual’s schedule

Excited and inspired to get involved?

Now is your opportunity to connect with thought leaders from Latin America, contribute to this change-making initiative, and get involved with Atlas Corps as we continue to grow and expand!
