Professional Service in Latin America - it's for mid-level peeps too!

In 2008, I left a full-time Development Director position to become an Atlas Corps Fellow in Colombia. It was one of the best professionals experiences of my career. I served at a grantmaking foundation, learned first-hand about the nonprofit sector in Latin America, and met great people. When I returned to the United States, the doors of professional opportunity opened to me! If you are looking for a service opportunity that is on the professional level and lots of fun, check out Atlas Corps! It is an investment in your future.
