The Office of the U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan (U.S. State Department) strives for a Sudan and South Sudan that are politically stable, economically prosperous, and at peace with its own people and neighbors. To forward this vision, the Office of the Special Envoy launched a special initiative with Atlas Corps to engage 14 Fellows from Sudan and 10 Fellows from South Sudan as part of the Atlas Corps Fellowship.
Atlas Corps seeks organizations to host nonprofit leaders from overseas in a 6 to 18 month fellowship. All Fellows have 2 to 10 years of experience, bachelors or graduate degrees, and are fluent in English. Atlas Corps generally partners with nonprofit organizations, though this opportunity is also open to socially-responsible corporations and government agencies. Atlas Corps Fellows serve at organizations such as Atlantic Council, Habitat for Humanity, Human Rights Campaign, InterAction, Nike Foundation, Save the Children, and Voice of America. Since 2006, we have engaged 235 Fellows from 57 countries!
