Big news from President Obama...

Fellows celebrate the Presidential announcement!
Fellows celebrate the Presidential announcement!

Did you hear our great news last week? On September 23, Atlas Corps achieved one of our most monumental achievements - a Presidential commitment announced at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York! We launched an official partnership with the U.S. Department of State, as part of President Obama's Stand with Civil Society agenda, to bring 100 of the world's emerging leaders to the United States on our 6 to 12-month Fellowship. 

The partnership, called the Emerging Global Leaders Initiative-Atlas Corps Fellowship (EGLI-Atlas Corps Fellowship), is a long-term investment in the strengthening of the global civil society sector. President Obama shared in his remarks at the Clinton Global Initiative:

"When citizens are free to organize and work together across borders to make our communities healthier, our environment cleaner, and our world safer, that's when real change comes."    

-President Obama (Clinton Global Initiative, September 23, 2014)

Atlas Corps Fellows and Alumni are examples of this concept in action as they inspire positive impact during the Fellowship and continue to achieve positive change after they return home. We are proud to make real change come together and excited to do more of it on a larger scale! 

We also recognize that this initiative is a team effort. As our GlobalGiving supporter, we thank you for playing a valuable role in the development of Atlas Corps! Your support helped us grow to the established organization that we are today. We invite you to join this exciting new global initiative. (click headers for more details):

 

 Apply/Nominate to be an EGLI-Atlas Corps Fellow. Opportunity is applicable to emerging civil society leaders who are non-U.S. citizens with a university degree and less than 35 years of age. Applications are open now.

• Host an EGLI-Atlas Corps Fellow. Opportunity open to organizations (nonprofit, private, and government) with an office located in the United States. More than 100 organizations have already hosted Atlas Corps Fellows including American Express Foundation, American Red Cross, Ashoka, BRAC USA, CARE, Habitat for Humanity, McKinsey & Co, Mercy Corps, Save the Children, UN Foundation, U.S. Peace Corps, and many more!

• Volunteer to Support EGLI-Atlas Corps Fellows. You can support the development of this exciting initiative. There are in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities open to people throughout the world.

We invite you to join Atlas Corps, President Obama, and the State Department as we unite forces to multiply our ability to provide opportunities for professional development and training to more leaders around the world!

Thanks!

What is your one thing....

#Do1Thing - July 16, 2014
#Do1Thing - July 16, 2014

Hello!

What is the one thing you do to make the world better? Atlas Corps is a network of 290 Fellows from 60 countries who bring their "one thing" together to positively impact our world. Whether it's youth development in Latin America to environmental issues in Southeast Asia, Atlas Corps Fellows cross borders and cultures to bring all those skills together to achieve results! Our Class 15 Fellows just arrived in May and they are already achieving results: 

  • Arturo (Mexico, Host: Kids Good Basket) promotes community building by enhancing daily operations at this hunger relief organizations and engaging unique volunteer groups.
  • Trina (India, Host: American Express Foundation) promotes leadership development through a leadership academy that brings together dynamic leaders from across the world.
  • Darren (China, Host: Human Rights First) promotes LGBT issues by advocating for equality and dignity on a global scale. 


Now, Atlas Corps is asking YOU, our supporters, that question this summer during our #Do1Thing campaign. Are you ready to get involved? The campaign is a lead up to GlobalGiving Bonus Day on July 16, 2014. Bonus Day is a day when individual contributions to Atlas Corps will be matched at 50% on July 16, 2014. 
Will you become a Campaign Captain? This honor means that you commit to donating $10 on 7.16.2014, recruit 10 friends/family to donate $10, and send us your #Do1Thing photo.

Together, we can achieve our goal and collectively share with the world: What is the one thing you do to make the world better? (#Do1Thing)

We are especially looking to YOU to play a special role. We will be in touch with more details over the next few weeks. 

Thanks!
