Providing each community with a 60+ page ATLAS field manual:We have developed a manual that each community can reference at any point along the journey. This manual has key points and suggestions on many relevant issues such as training, fund-raising, culture, human resources, best practices, administration and organizational policy. The manual also includes a comprehensive collection of paper and CD files of ATLAS documents including all marketing pieces, applications, client paperwork, mentor training materials, sample corporate articles and form 1023 for tax-exempt status, sample budget and much more.

ATLAS Group offers gift assessment, personal development strategies and subsequent 360 reviews to other ATLAS personnel as well as within the business community. We are also certified to offer Franklin Covey's Training, on the 7 habits of Highly Effective People.
Two times a year we host a time of renewal for the directors from each ATLAS community. Our purpose in doing this is to serve and bless the work that each director is doing, provide opportunities for personal development, and to think strategically and share insight/success/failures in the areas of culture, fundraising, conflict management, team building, board communication and involvement, budgeting and human resources.
