Fellowships to Canada and International individuals in nonprofit, for-profit, governmental, and other sectors, for leadership training in the USA. The fellowship is intended for a period that typically lasts 12 to 18 months and consists of a full-time professional development program at the host organization in the United States. Fellows will develop leadership skills, learn nonprofit best practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series, and network with other Fellows who are skilled nonprofit professionals from around the world.
Participants receive health insurance, flight and visa costs, and a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing).
The Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab comprises of more than 200 hours of experiential learning that is both theoretical and practical. At three, four-day training immersions convened over the course of the 12-month Fellowship, Fellows participate in presentations and workshops led by innovative social change leaders who share practical strategies for social impact, as well as their own professional journeys. This professional development series intentionally combines hard skills like business planning and proposal writing with intensive workshops that explore critical soft skills like conflict resolution and leadership.
