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!

P.S. Join us to welcome Class 13 and celebrate our 200 Fellow milestone during the Atlas Corps Go Global Gala 2013 (Thursday, September 5). In true Atlas Corps style, it will be a night of food, friends, and Fellows and we will also feature the GlobalGiving Foundation who is hosting two Fellows as part of Class 13!

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

Hello!

Thanks to our fabulous network of donors (like YOU), GlobalGiving just named us the March Project of the Month. It means that we will be highlighted to the broader network of GlobalGiving donors. To celebrate, I wanted to share our current Top 3 Highlights of 2013. It is amazing that we can already celebrate so many achievements in only the first two months of the year:

1) Atlas Corps Class 11 Arrives! The Atlas Corps network great to 155 Fellows from 49 countries, including the addition of Belarus, Bolivia, Romania, and Syria, with the welcoming of our class in January. This Class also marked the launch of our Sudanese Civil Society Fellowship and the Think Tank LINKS Fellowship (an initiative focused on engaging think tank professionals).

2) State Department Hosts Atlas Corps Event! For the first time, Atlas Corps hosted a public event at the U.S. State Department. The event highlights our new partnership with the Office for the Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan to engage 14 Fellows from Sudan. With 200 people in attendance, Fellows shared their energy with the crowd and our Founder & CEO, Scott Beale, inspired with his words and vision for starting this organization seven years ago. The event was a celebration of citizen diplomacy!

3) Atlas Corps Fellow Wins Intercultural Innovation Award! Aldo Arce (Mexico, Class 9, serving at National Audubon Society) won first place in this award sponsored by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the BMW Group for his Mexican organization, Puerto Joven. Aldo and his organization were honored in the Global Forum in Vienna. See photo featuring Aldo and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. 

in 2013, our goal is to engage at least 60 Fellows (our largest number EVER). Will you continue to show your support? Will you participate in our first individual donation matching campaign on Wednesday, March. 13? All contributions will be matched at 30%.

Let's get ready for more highlights in 2013! When I say "Atlas," you say "Corps!"

Thank you for all the support-

Abby
