Dave Moss launched the Atlas Corps A Shalom Alaykum Project as part of a ConnectGens Fellow. The Atlas Corps A Shalom Alaykum Project, a special initiative within the Atlas Corps Fellowship, recruits talented and experienced Jewish and Muslim nonprofit professionals and places them in year-long service fellowships in the United States at leading organizations in the nonprofit sector.
The ConnectGens Fellowship, powered by PresenTense, provides Jewish social innovators with the training, tools and connections to transform big ideas into ventures or projects that will engage, inspire and support the Jewish community locally, in Israel and overseas. 10 Fellows are selected each year to receive training, work alongside mentors and coaches and turn their ideas into a reality.
This service component will be complemented by the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab - a 12-component professional development series on the effective practices of nonprofit management. The Atlas Corps A Shalom Alaykum Project is based on the successful Atlas Corps model that has placed more than 160 leaders from 50 countries at organizations like Ashoka, American Jewish World Service, and McKinsey & Company. Our experience shows us that when people are outside of their home environment, they are open to new ideas, more free to learn about others, debate issues, and grow social capital. We have had Pakistani and Indian Fellows serve together as well as Turks and Armenians. If you can inspire interaction between nonprofit leaders from opposing sides of conflict, you can inspire positive impact in society. The Atlas Corps A Shalom Alaykum Project is an opportunity to overcome cultural and political barriers to unite people in a spirit of service and shared experience.
