Mark Your Calendars: October 23 is Bonus Day! 

Give 30% more on 10/23/13. All donations made between 9 AM - 12 PM matched by 30%.

Hello!

Thank you for your ongoing support to Atlas Corps! While there are many questions in the air related to the current state of government, Atlas Corps is proud that our Fellows, Alumni, and Host Organizations are getting things done. You, too, are getting things done through your contributions. In fact, I am pleased to share that we have four monthly donors and more than 100 donations received through GlobalGiving - thank you! Now, are you ready to give 30% more? In one week (Wednesday, October 23) is GlobalGiving Bonus Day. All donations matched up to 30%. You can keep building our global network.

As you may have read least week, Scott sent an email update about Getting Things Done, "At Atlas Corps, we are all about getting things done. No matter your politics or your perspective, we can all agree that the challenges of the world need great leaders to address them. I am proud that Atlas Corps develops leaders who get things done." In fact, in our first seven years, we have supported 206 Fellows from 54 countries who are getting things done.

Specifically, we highlight two of our Alumni inspiring impact on a global scale:

  • Esther Agbarakwe (Nigeria, Class 7, Host: PAI): Talked about motivating connections into actions in a conversation with Melinda Gates during the UN Foundation's Social Good Summit in September. You can watch her video clip.
  • Vithika Yadav (India, Class 1, Host: Free the Slaves): Shared her personal experience with sexual harassment and gender-based violence in this TEDx Talk at The Hague.

Thank you for providing the support to inspire these global professionals.

Next Wednesday, October 23, will you help "get things done" during GlobalGiving Bonus Day? Your contribution will be matched by 30% between 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT on 10/23/2013.

On behalf of Esther, Vithika, and all our Fellows, we thank you for being such valued members of our community!

Cheers!

Abby

Announcing Class 13 - We Achieved 200 Fellows!

Today, we announce the largest class of Atlas Corps Fellows EVER - Atlas Corps Class 13 and celebrate the achievement of 200 Fellows! In fact, Atlas Corps is now 206 Fellows from 54 countries and 109 Host Organizations. Awesome! The long-term impact of our Alumni is also possible because of the many opportunities received during the Fellowship. Just this week, I received an email from our Alumni Luckmore (Zimbabwe, Class 9, Host: MSI) who recently started a position with ActionAid Denmark. He shared, "I find myself appreciating the Atlas Corps training and network. It encompasses the big part of my work here. Every week, I meet the President, senators, representatives, diplomats, and I attribute my high level of professionalism to what I learned as a Fellow…." Well said, Luckmore! Thanks to all for inspiring this achievement. 

Thanks for your support!

Hello!

 

It is my honor to share three great highlights from Atlas Corps. As we transition into the summer months in Washington, DC, our energy remains high.

 

First, Atlas Corps welcomes our newest member of the team: Elliot Beale! We congratulate our Founder and CEO Scott, along with his wife, Courtney, on the arrival of their son. While Scott enjoys some quality family time, I am honored to provide the most recent Atlas Corps update.

 

Second, the State Department just announced expansion of support to South Sudan. In 2012, the Office of the Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan launched a partnership with Atlas Corps to engage 14 Fellows from Sudan. In May 2013, the Office of the Special Envoy expanded this partnership to engage 10 Fellows from South Sudan starting in September 2013. 

 

Third, our Fellow Souad Alfaki (Sudan, Class 12, Host: PVBLIC Foundation) was just featured on Voice of America. A former Communications Officer for Save the Children, Souad recently shared her experience and thoughts on the future of African youth as part of a discussion on Voice of America (VOA) - bit.ly/AtlasCorpsSouadAflaki

Awesome! Thank you for being part of these ongoing developments at Atlas Corps. Everyday, I am honored to be part of this network and inspired by your generosity. Please reach out if you have questions or are traveling through Washington, DC, this summer. We would love to see you-

Abby
