Are you passionate about sustainable community development? Introduce yourself! Our team is constantly evolving, and we’re always open to an introduction.

Working at High Atlas Foundation

High Atlas Foundation is a Moroccan association and U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000 by former Peace Corps Volunteers committed to furthering sustainable development in Morocco. Their love of the Moroccan people, culture, and local communities’ vast potential to generate shared prosperity are driving forces behind our work.

Working with us allows people who align with our values and vision to make a difference in the lives of people across Morocco. The work we do can be difficult and takes dedication to see multi-year projects through to successful conclusions. It is also incredibly rewarding work done in a vibrant network of colleagues, partners, and community members.

As a part of the High Atlas Foundation team, you’re part of a phenomenal group of change-makers who are taking on the challenge of supporting communities on their path to sustainability.
