Recruiting Organization: Atlas Corps

Be a Local Ambassador and "first friend" to an International Nonprofit Leader: Help them feel at home in a new city. (Specifically looking for Volunteers located in DC, NYC, and Chicago.)

A Local Ambassador is a dedicated "first friend" who is paired with an incoming Atlas Corps Fellow in the same city for the first four months of their Atlas Corps Fellowship. Local Ambassadors serve as on-the-ground support who help our Fellows adjust to their city, navigate through local culture, and meet up with them at least once per month for a fun activity. In the past, Fellows and Local Ambassadors have gone hiking, met for coffee, visited museums, and attended networking events.

Impact: By providing one-on-one support to a Fellow, we hope you will help a Fellow integrate into United States culture more easily, lower the feeling of isolation and stress, and enable the Fellow to contribute and learn with the host organization.

TIME COMMITMENT: A few hours/month for 4 months starting in late April 2022 and also July 2022. We ask that you email or Skype with the Fellow before they arrive, assist them in adjusting to life in the U.S. and meet with them at least once a month (get coffee, go to a museum, etc.) to check-in and do an activity that you both enjoy! We also hope that you can pick your Fellow up from the airport when they arrive.
