Hours per week

99 M Street Southeast
Floor 4
District of Columbia
United States


Are you interested in international exchange programs or nonprofit work? Maybe you're looking to develop skills in event planning, personnel management, marketing, outreach, networking, communications, or fundraising? Who knows, maybe you’re just trying to figure out what you want to do when you grow up? (We’ll let you in on a secret, many people are still trying to figure that out for themselves.) Whatever your answer, we’ve got you covered!

Atlas Corps is an international Fellowship program that brings mid-career professionals from around the world to serve in social change organizations in the United States for 12-18 months. (Check out our current and previous Hosts here.)

We’re looking for undergraduate and graduate Interns who are eager to contribute to a growing organization and develop a range of skills. The Atlas Corps team is a team of 15, which means Interns have an opportunity to contribute substantially to projects being carried out by the team they choose to Intern with. No getting coffee or making copies - the Atlas Corps Intern Army take on interesting and impactful work. More importantly, they work on projects they're passionate about. (We capitalize the I in Intern for a reason!)

In addition to experiencing the day to day of a growing non-profit, we dedicate time each week to focus on different areas of our Intern Army’s professional development. Some examples of past professional development sessions include: LinkedIn tips and tricks, resume and cover letter help, salesforce training, identifying and developing personal narratives, and general interviewing (both job-related and informational).

Our offices are located at 99 M St SE next to the Navy Yard-Ball Park Metro Stop. All Internships are unpaid, but once you become a part of the team, our network is your network.
