Atlas Corps Accepting Fellow Applications
Last week we covered a newish non-profit that is working in workforce development. I corresponded with the USA Country Director of Atlas Corps and asked if they had any new news. She replied: Our biggest news right now is that we are trying to spread the word about the Fellowship before our April 16 application deadline. We’re looking for mid-career rising citizen sector leaders from India and Colombia… Please spread the following information to your networks:
Atlas Service Corps, Inc. (“Atlas Corps“) is a new international citizen sector (nonprofit or NGO) organization that will revolutionize international service and build a global partnership for development.
