Greetings!

How are you? 2022 has so far been an exciting year of new opportunities and growth, and you have been pivotal in every moment. Because of YOU, our Community continues to grow to 1,400+ social change leaders from 115 countries. 

We invite you to join us on July 20 at 12pm ET for Bonus Day and Celebration of Service on YouTube. Through our #BuildBridges campaign, this virtual celebration will feature our Fellows, Scholars, Alumni, and Host Organizations who are changing the world through collaboration. Gifts of $100+ will be matched! We also welcome you to share with your network: Invite your friends on Facebook here and/or share across your social media using our toolkit. Learn more about the event at donate.atlascorps.org.

In preparation for this day of celebrations, I’d like to take the time to recognize your part in making this all possible. Here is just a snapshot of the immense gratitude we have for your support in our efforts towards empowering women globally.

Thank you for creating opportunities for our global leaders to learn and grow!

  • Fellow Michelle (Class 44, Mexico) had the opportunity to represent Atlas Corps at the VI Young Americas Forum in Los Angeles, California. As a panelist, Michelle presented Atlas Corps as an effective global service model: “Global service models such as Atlas Corps help break down barriers among countries, cultures, and people by immersing global young leaders into local communities in the U.S. and creating an intercultural exchange between local residents and international fellows.” Read about her experience here.
  • Alumna Swarnima (Class 27, Nepal) is the Communications and Knowledge Management Specialist at Swisscontact Nepal, where she has led the communication strategies for projects that provide employment opportunities for women and youths in marginalized groups. Swarnima is grateful for the opportunities your support has given her: “I believe the year of the Fellowship has been one of the most remarkable years of my life. It provided me an opportunity to participate in programs and events and meet people who changed my perspective on a lot of things. It helped me grow personally, too. I feel like I have emerged as a more confident person.” Read more about her inspiring work here.

Thank you for helping us #BuildBridges between our global leaders and our Host Organizations–such as Girl Up, who is currently hosting two Fellows!

  • Fellow Asma (Class 42, Tunisia) is the MENA Regional Fellow. Asma is in charge of developing new strategies for program engagement and building Girl Up’s grassroot networks in the region.
  • Fellow Patrícia (Class 42, Brazil) is the Global Operations Fellow. Patrícia is in charge of overseeing global operations and supporting the two new pilot affiliates in Mexico and Brazil.
  • Julie Willig is the Senior Director of Global Operations and their supervisor. She is grateful for both Asma’s and Patrícia’s impact on her team: “Both Fellows have pushed me to think about our work, our infrastructure, and our core issues in a new way. They have shared their values with me and have offered a fresh and important perspective.” Learn more about Girl Up’s Host Organization experience here.

Your support has made a tremendous difference in the Atlas Corps Community. I am excited for us to celebrate more on July 20! Together, WE are Atlas Corps!

Until next time-

Abby

Hello,

Thank you for your ongoing support of our global community! Over these days, we have come together via messages, calls, and social media to support one another and our networks. Our CEO Bidjan Nashat shared this letter this week in our newseltter. We appreciate your ongoing engagement and renew our commitment to building bridges and inspiring emerging leaders.

A note from Atlas Corps CEO Bidjan Nashat, as shared in our recent newsletter:

During weeks like these, in which we are worried about peace in Europe, my thoughts are with my friends and our Community in Ukraine.

At Atlas Corps, our aim is to bring together young leaders from all over the world to develop self, develop others, and lead movements for positive change on the critical social issues of our time. And to stand in solidarity with and support each other in times of crises.

That is what we did on Monday by bringing together our global Community virtually, with people dialing in and representing five continents. We expressed our solidarity with our Ukrainian, and our Russian Community members who are out on the streets demanding an end to the war.

We, at Atlas Corps, believe that connecting young people across cultures, languages, and ethnicities while growing leadership skills in self and others, can help us to lead a movement for more understanding between people. If you have had the pleasure of talking with an Atlas Corps Leader (Fellows, virtual Scholars, or Alumni), you may have heard them share how this leadership experience transformed the way they think and act in the world.

Our commitment to creating more global connections and leadership development opportunities motivates Atlas Corps and is inspiring our current strategy process. We invite you to learn more and contribute to #AtlasCorps2025 at tinyurl.com/atlascorps2025.

Please also join me in celebrating our Community and in welcoming our Cohort 8 Scholars. Together, we are the Atlas Corps Community!

Hello- 

How are you? Thank YOU for being an Atlas Corps donor! You have made it a remarkable year!  With your support, we celebrate this milestone: our 15-Year Anniversary!  Together, we also advance our growing community, representing 1,100 social change leaders from 110 countries. We appreciate you!

Through our #AtlasCorps15 blog campaign, we highlight Atlas Corps Leaders (Fellows, Alumni, and Scholars) like Alumna Swarnima (Class 32, Nepal) who joined Swisscontact Nepal as a Communications and Knowledge Management Specialist after her Fellowship.  Swarnima shared about her experience as a Fellow:

“I believe the year of the Fellowship has been one of the most remarkable years of my life. It provided me an opportunity to participate in programs and events and meet people who changed my perspective on a lot of things. It helped me grow personally, too. I feel like I have emerged as a more confident person.” 

Thank YOU for supporting a remarkable year for Swarnima’s and for inspiring our global community!  

We invite you to join us on November 18 (12:00 PM ET) for our Virtual Celebration. We will host our virtual celebration with special remarks from Jayathma Wickramanayake, UN Secretary-General Envoy on Youth. Tune in at facebook.com/atlascorps and youtube.com/atlascorps. Learn more at   15.atlascorps.org.

Cheers, 

Abby

Hello, how are you? Happy International Women’s Day! Thank you for your generous support of Atlas Corps. Thank you for empowering our growing community, representing 1000 social change leaders from 105 countries. We appreciate you!

Atlas Corps proudly celebrates the achievements of women changemakers in our community. 64% of Atlas Corps Leaders (Fellows, Alumni, and Scholars) are women and many Leaders in our community advocate for gender equality and women’s empowerment. Amongst so many impact stories from Atlas Corps Leaders, I want to share two -

  • Disha (India, Class 24, Host: Atlas Corps) Disha completed her first documentary “Women and Religion in India”, which has been screened at multiple international film festivals and conferences including Women Deliver 2019 Global Conference, and has won four awards.
  • Hira (Pakistan, Class 31, Host: Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship) Hira founded CaterpillHERs, an organization that provides women entrepreneurs access to the early-stage business curriculum and mentorship.

To celebrate the Atlas Corps Leaders that address gender inequity and the world’s most critical social issues, we invite you to join us at the Atlas Corps 15 Year Anniversary Gala, November 20, 2021. Our community will gather in-person in DC and virtually to celebrate 15 years of achievement. Details and RSVP at 15.atlascorps.org

Thank you for supporting our 2019 Empower Women Globally campaign. Thank you for supporting Atlas Corps in 2021! Let us embrace new opportunities as we continue to inspire positive impact in our world...one social change leader at a time!

Cheers,
