How are you? July is upon us already. Atlas Corps is busy reflecting on the first half of 2021 and we want to say THANK YOU! You have helped us achieve some significant milestones in just the last six months. Most remarkably, we have grown our community to 1,100 Leaders from 110 countries. We also welcomed our first Fellows to the United States in April 2021. Day by day, we are supporting social change leaders who are inspiring impact at home and abroad.
An excellent example is this highlight from our Alum Ikenna (Nigeria, Class 36, Host: Making Cents International) who launched an initiative that focuses on positive youth development,, "Earlier this year, I started working on a project with the knowledge I gained while on my Atlas Corps Fellowship … I created PROJECT B.O.L.D, a Violence and Bullying Prevention Program." Ikenna, like many of our Atlas Corps Leaders, are multiplying impact by applying the knowledge and networks gained during the Fellowship at home. Thank YOU for supporting Ikenna and our global community. Thank you for helping us to achieve this 15th Anniversary milestone. As a donor, you play an integral role in our success.
