How will you make an impact? (in one week...)

#GivingTuesday December 2
#GivingTuesday December 2

Greetings!

 

How do you make an impact? How do we make an impact? It is a question for each of us and for all of us. In one week (December 2), we will celebrate #GivingTuesday - a global movement to support innovative organizations around the world. It is an opportunity to continue inspiring impact by supporting our Atlas Corps Fellows. 

 

Your support achieves results! When Atlas Corps Alumni return to South Sudan, they bring shared knowledge and support one another to forward positive change. When Atlas Corps Fellows share their personal stories, they empower others with knowledge. When global convenings invite Fellows to participate, these emerging professionals gain skills that they can share at home. Together, we achieve impact!

Our Fellow, Ochuko Keyamo (Nigeria, Class 12, Host: GBCHealth), captured the opportunity of shared impact in her recent blog post on completing her Fellowship in the United States,

"...the Fellowship was life changing. I am indeed a better person now, I have grown so much and well equipped to face my world and bring about a positive change....I do not see this as a goodbye but rather an opportunity to work together in another platform. My world, my country awaits me to help bring the change that we seek, and life doesn’t get better by Chance but by Change."

Act local. Impact global. Support an Atlas Corps Fellow.

P.S. I also want to say THANK YOU! As we near the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, it is a great time to reflect on how each of us inspire positive impact in our world. You have had a positive impact on Atlas Corps. This Thanksgiving we celebrate you!

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!

Scott
