Atlas Corps Welcomes Class 7 Brings Fellowship to More than 100 Participants!
"We welcome our Class 7 Atlas Corps Fellows with great enthusiasm—23 nonprofit leaders from 16 countries ranging from Colombia to Nepal to Yemen. These inspiring individuals left their homes—some in times of major social change—to become part of a global network committed to improving our world,” said Atlas Corps Founder and CEO Scott Beale. “Now, more than ever, we see the value in building bridges across cultures and countries in our increasingly globalized world. Atlas Corps’s work to address social issues, develop leaders, strengthen organizations, and promote innovation is achieving this goal by taking a new approach to facilitating international cooperation in the nonprofit sector.”
It is an honor to introduce Class 7, serving in Washington, DC, New York, Atlanta, Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Bogota, Colombia!
