Atlas Corps is continuing our work to build and empower social change leaders for the world - and we couldn’t do it without your support. While we are closing down this project page, we hope that you’ll continue to support us by reallocating your donation to Atlas Corps' other project, #BuildBridges: Support Atlas Corps Global Leaders.
Your support goes towards ensuring that Atlas Corps continues to reach leaders across the world. Leaders join Atlas Corps' community of over 1,500 emerging leaders from countries all over the world, empowering them with the skills and network to make the world a better place.
Thank you for your continued commitment to bridging opportunities and empowering tomorrow’s leaders.

Hello [donor first name]
Thank you for your continued support for [Project]! 2023 will be filled with many new and exciting changes to our global community and I look forward to sharing them with you.
As Atlas Corps moves forward into the new year, I’d like to take a moment to thank you for helping us expand our global network. I am happy to report that since our last update in October, we have been able to build new partnerships and continue our engagement with global leaders.
Last month, Atlas Corps welcomed Class 48, a group of 5 emerging professionals from Cuba, Egypt, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. They recently began service at their Host Organizations, which includes my former colleagues at Save the Children. I encourage you to meet our new Fellows here.
On behalf of our Fellows and Alumni, thank you for your ongoing support! Thanks to you, Fellows like Michelle (Class 44, Mexico) can continue to inspire positive change at their Host Organizations. While at One to World, Michelle is involved in their flagship program, Global Classroom, which delivers a series of intercultural programs to under-resourced youth. Michelle shares, “it was certainly surprising to later receive letters from some children telling me how I taught them things about their own country that they did not about before – little did I knew there were some Mexican children in the classroom – or others even explaining how they understood their privilege of not having to leave their country alone.”
Lastly, I have one more very important update to share with you. Please join our Team in wishing our Chief Strategy Officer and Atlas Corps Alum Abby a farewell. After 12.5 years on our Team, Abby has been a valuable team member and an inspiration to our entire Community. As an Alum she will continue to bring her positive energy to our Community. Here is a special thank you from Abby:
Atlas Corps is a special part of all of our journeys. Atlas Corps is about connecting with dynamic individuals who share a passion for possibility. Thank you, Atlas Corps Community (staff, donors, volunteers, and more) for providing me the opportunity to be a Fellow and believing in my ability to grow and lead this organization. The future is bright and I am excited to be part of it!
Thank you once again for all you have done for the Atlas Corps Community. We are grateful for your friendship and what you do for Atlas Corps and I am excited for what this year has in store for us!
Bidjan Nashat, Atlas Corps CEO

Three Reasons I Am Excited to Launch our #AtlasCorps2025 Strategy
Click here to read the full post
Based on my first few months getting to know Atlas Corps, I want to share with you the three reasons why I’m excited and energized to kick off the #AtlasCorps2025 strategy process in February:
Now is an opportunity for more equity in making skills and leadership potential, rather than location, the decisive factor in hiring young talent. And we are only scratching the surface of the iceberg of talent if the Atlas Corps Alumni and the thousands of annual applicants are any indicator.
Our great team will bring their experience from the first 15 years into this process. We will work with Jesse as a coach....We are also grateful to receive the pro-bono Board Fellow advice from the Boston Consulting Group‘s Steffyn and Rifaiyat....Our Atlas Corps Board members....And Adi, a MBA students at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business...More partners are joining soon and we will challenge ourselves every single day to be curious and think about scaling opportunities for talented young people across the globe to lead.
