DescriptionAtlas Service Corps (Atlas Corps) is seeking interns for our Washington, DC office near the Shaw-Howard U Metro Station to support our international exchange program. Atlas Corps accepts intern applications on a rolling basis for the fall, spring, and summer semesters, or for winter break (mid-December through mid-January).
Atlas Corps, started in 2006, is an international network of nonprofit leaders and organizations that promotes innovation, cooperation, and solutions to address the world's 21st-century challenges. Our mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals. Profiled as a "best practice" in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and featured in the Washington Post as a model social entrepreneurship program, Atlas Corps engages leaders committed to the nonprofit sector in 6-to-18 month professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global changemakers. Our Fellows serve at Host Organizations such as Ashoka, the Grameen Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Susan G. Komen, the UN Foundation, Oxfam, WWF, and the U.S. Peace Corps. In addition to serving at an organization related to their experience, Fellows learn leadership skills while networking with skilled nonprofit professionals from around the world.
ResponsibilitiesAtlas Corps offers several internship positions every semester:
The Development Intern works with our chief development and engagement officer and assists with social media, grant and proposal writing, fundraising efforts, and research.
The Program Intern works with our program team to help with global promotion, recruitment, the Fellow selection process, and planning for the Fellows' orientation and graduation.
The Event-Planning Intern assists with the development of our professional training days for Fellows. Strong technological skills, including comfort with Google Plus, are helpful in this role.
The Partnerships Intern assists with host organization research and developing relationships with new partners and potential host organizations. Partnerships are crucial to the Atlas Corps business model and the intern will play an important role in developing relationships with new partners and potential host organizations. The Parternships Intern may also assist in the selection of finalist applicants and matching finalists to potential host organizations.
The Executive Intern will assist our CEO in host organization research, marketing and promoting the Fellowship, answering emails, making travel arrangements, and administrative duties.
RequirementsAs a young and growing organization, we seek smart, hard-working interns to take on substantial tasks and contribute to the growth of the organization. Interns should be able to work independently, stay organized, take initiative, pay attention to detail, and have an interest in international relations and cultural exchange. Interns should be proficient in basic computer skills (Microsoft Office and internet research skills required; Gmail and Google Apps skills a plus). The internship is open to undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students. Atlas Corps interns play a critical role in our organization and have the opportunity to meet nonprofit leaders from around the world.
Interns should be fluent in English, and foreign language skills, especially Spanish, are a plus, but not required.
