Atlas Corps seeks facilitators for Virtual Leadership Institute

Want to meet the world's rising social change leaders and improve your facilitation skills right from the comfort of your own home? Volunteer as a Group Captain for our Virtual Leadership Institute!

Overview: Atlas Corps is looking for virtual volunteers to facilitate monthly peer coaching groups as part of our new Virtual Leadership Institute, which is an online learning community for global social change leaders between the ages of 22 - 35. The Leadership Institute was developed based on the three pillars of Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab model: Developing Self, Developing Others, and Building Movements. This seven-month online program includes keynote speakers, interactive workshops, self-led activities, and community-building activities with leading U.S. organizations and leaders. The peer coaching groups give the institutes' participants an opportunity to meet in smaller groups to discuss the program curriculum, trade advice, and engage with each other in the development of their leadership projects. 

Impact: Designed for mission-driven individuals seeking social change, the Virtual Leadership Institute will help these individuals obtain additional professional development skills and drive an even greater impact in communities around the world. The result is a global society ecosystem that is strengthened with knowledge, inspired by a shared passion for positive social impact, and empowered with the tools to achieve results.

As a group captain, you will create a productive environment for co-learning, help the participants develop their leadership project, and guide the group through discussions around leadership development and social impact. 

Time Commitment and Expectations: 2 - 2.5 hours per month. There will be 7 peer coaching groups via a monthly video call (each call is approximately 75 minutes) over the course of seven months from November 2020 to May 2021. 

You will be given the materials and guidance for each peer coaching session, and some pre-reading and preparation will be required. Video calls will be scheduled in advance based on both your availability and the availability of the program participants.

Eligibility: 

  • Time Commitment: able to commit to an initial 1.5 hour training and 2 - 2.5 hours per month for monthly video calls and pre-reading preparation 
  • Facilitation experience 
  • Work Experience: 5 or more years of full-time professional experience (experience in supporting programs/projects in the nonprofit or social impact sector a plus)
  • Internationally-Minded: Strong interpersonal and cross-cultural communication skills and proven ability to interact effectively with people of diverse cultures and backgrounds 
  • Education: Bachelor’s degree or equivalent 
  • Language: English Fluency (oral, writing, reading) 
  • Tech Savvy: Knowledge of and/or the ability to quickly become familiar with Zoom for video conferencing 
  • A positive attitude and an open mind
  • Coaching experience (preferred, but not required)

 

Benefits: 

  • Practice your facilitation skills
  • Access to all content, resources, and live sessions of the Virtual Leadership Institute 
  • Learn from social change leaders from around the world who want to drive social impact 
  • $150 honorarium
