The Atlas Corps is recruiting Indonesia’s brightest young professionals, with a focus on those with experience in government, politics, nonprofits, education, or a similar social change field. This initiative is a collaboration between Atlas Corps and @america, and is partially supported by the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia.
The Atlas Corps x @america: Indonesian Public Sector Leadership Initiative is a special initiative to engage emerging Indonesian social change leaders for global leadership development opportunities in the United States and online.
The Atlas Corps Fellowship engages professionals committed to social change in 12-18 months of service with organizations online and in the U.S. to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global leaders.
Fellows serve full-time with Host Organizations to develop leadership skills and learn effective practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series and networking opportunities with other Fellows.
The U.S.-based component of the Fellowship allows participants to engage in group cultural activities like a D.C. Monuments Tour, sporting events, U.S. holiday celebrations, and more.
Atlas Corps sponsors Fellows on the J-1 Trainee visa and covers most visa expenses. Atlas Corps also provides each Fellow with a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing), a monthly phone plan, emergency health and travel insurance, and round-trip international airfare.
