How are you today? Thank you for your support of Atlas Corps! When we asked, you responded. We are a stronger community thanks to you! Speaking of community- we are thrilled to share updates and opportunities for continued involvement:
Class 40 - started this month! They are our second Class of “blended” Fellows - starting service remotely and then transitioning to the United States when able. Meet the Fellows!
Cohort 1 - we welcomed our first group of Virtual Leadership Institute Scholars. Our new online learning community builds on our established model and increases our abilities to engage global leaders around the world. Meet the Scholars!
Amidst the challenges of this year, we continue to advance impact by training social change leaders and strengthening organizations in the US and around the world. To celebrate, we invite you to meet our community of 850 global leaders from 99 countries during the Atlas Corps Global Impact Gala on December 16th 12pm EST.
During the virtual Gala, we will honor former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright with the Global Changemaker Award! We will also be joined by Alumni, Fellows and Scholars, including Alumni like Edison (Class 26, Albania). After completing his Atlas Corps Fellowship at Open Gov Hub and moving back to Albania, Edison opened the Open Gov Hub Albania affiliate. We are inspired by his commitment to social impact- and by your support of our community!
Will you celebrate with us? You can make a contribution as inspired and we will follow-up with details to join us. BONUS: Will you make your contribution on Giving Tuesday, December 1st- all donations matched!
I am writing with a quick message on behalf of the Atlas Corps community to acknowledge your contributions to our mission and the social change leaders we empower. When we asked for additional support for our Fellows affected by travel changes caused by the global pandemic, you responded. When we invited you to be part of Bonus Day on July 15, you joined. In true superhero form, you have showed up for Atlas Corps when we need you most.
Thank YOU for supporting our community of 775+ Fellows with your donations, gifts, volunteering and more!
We are grateful to those who were able to attend the Superhero Soirée to close Bonus Day on July 15th. We gathered nearly 50 community members- Fellows, Alumni, Atlas Corps team members, and friends and supporters- for an evening of celebrating the superheroes of our network. We ended Bonus Day with gratitude and in the company of our beloved community- thank you! We hope you will join us for our next virtual engagement!
This year has presented unanticipated challenges for our Fellows and for Atlas Corps. Despite these unprecedented obstacles, your support empowers us to move boldly forward and advance a world of well-networked, trained global social change leaders.
Atlas Corps Fellow Karam (Class 36, Host: Microsoft) expresses our sentiment best-
"Changes usually start with one person; Atlas Corps gives young leaders the tools to start their journey to change their small world and go from there to change the world at large. Your support is essential to helping these young leaders on their journey."
Thank you for not just believing in superheroes- thank you for becoming a superhero! Thank you for inspiring change and supporting Atlas Corps!
P.S. I invite you to learn about the Atlas Corps Fellows highlighted as part of the #BecomeASuperhero Campaign- you can read more at our blog.
