Hello [donor first name]

I hope you all had a wonderful start to this new year! On behalf of our Superheroes, thank you for your continued 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.”

As we continue to move forward into 2023, I am pleased to report that our global network continues to grow! Here are a few of our most recent highlights…

Last month, Atlas Corps welcomes Class 48, a group of 5 innovative leaders from Cuba, Egypt, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. I encourage you to meet our new Fellows here. With your support, we were able to connect our Class 48 Fellows with their Host Organizations, including my former colleagues at Save the Children and our newest partner, Generation. Generation is a global nonprofit that prepares, places, and supports people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. Since launching our Remote Fellowship Program, we were able to successfully place 4 Generation Fellows in Class 47 and 1 Generation Fellow in Class 48. You can learn more about Generation here and our partnership here.

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 for inspiring our network of Superheroes! I cannot express enough how much we value your friendship. Until next time!

Hello, Friend!

2022 continues to be an unforgettable year for Atlas Corps filled with new changes and lasting connections. I am happy to share with you that Atlas Corps is now an official Open Gov Hub Member! Open Gov Hub has been a valued Host Organization over the years and we are excited to continue to share synergies with them as we move forward into the future. We welcome you to learn more about Open Gov Hub and their Global Affiliate Hubs, including the three that are run by Atlas Corps Alumni: Albania, Liberia, and Tunisia. Also, we encourage you to update your records with our new address:

Atlas Corps
c/o Open Gov Hub
1100 13th Street NW, Suite 800
Washington, D.C. 20005-4281

As a special thank you for continuously inspiring our Superheroes, we invite you to a month filled with celebrations and opportunities to get involved. 

  • Invite - Mark your calendars! We invite you to join us on October 18 at 12pm ET for our Fall Celebration of Service! We will be featuring all of our Fellows, Scholars, and Alumni that have began and/or completed their service in the last few months, including our: 2022 Cohort of Hilton Prize Scholars: In our June update, we welcomed them into our Global Community and now, thanks to your support, we will be celebrating their graduation! Meet them here; and Cohort 10 Scholars: These dynamic leaders from Russia and the United States will be participating in our Virtual Leadership Institute, “Leadership in Times of Change.” Meet some of them here.
  • Spread the Word - Virtual Leadership Institute Recruitment - Atlas Corps recently launched the recruitment campaigns for professionals in Nicaragua and climate change leaders in Spain. You are welcome to share amongst your professional networks using our social media toolkits (Nicaragua and Spain).

Thank you for helping Atlas Corps #BuildBridges by connecting our Fellows, like Daliya (Class 41, India) to their Host Organizations. Daliya is the Marketing and Communications Fellow at SAP, where she leads their global internal and external campaigns and supports their social media channel, SAP4Good. Her supervisor, Jennifer Beason, the Global Director of Social Business, shares how you are making a difference in their organization:


“In the long run, I believe that having a skilled Atlas Corps Fellow join our team to focus specifically on an area of our business that was underserved–in our case SAP’s Corporate Social Responsibility, Marketing and Communication Strategy makes a drastic difference. Daliya’s inputs and initiatives have allowed us to be more thoughtful about how we communicate the impact our programs are delivering every single day. The level of focus and attention to storytelling detail would not have been possible without having Daliya as a trusted team member.” (I invite you to read more about Daliya’s work at SAP here.)




P.S. I encourage you to visit and follow the Atlas Corps LinkedIn page, where we will continue to update on all of these exciting events!

Over the past two years, you have remained by our side through the uncertainties, celebrated with us in our accomplishments, and–since launching our #AtlasCorps2025 strategic plan–continue to strive with us into the future. Now that we’re halfway through 2022, I’d like us to take a moment to celebrate you by showing how much you’ve inspired our Community of Superheroes.

Since we last spoke…

Your support helped us grow our Global Community to 1,400+ social change leaders from 115 countries!

Your support helped our Superheroes inspire positive impact across the globe!

  • Fellow Lorna (Class 43, Kenya) is the Project Management Fellow at her Host Organization, Luminate. Her supervisor Laura Bacon, the Director of Partner support, describes Lorna as multi-faceted and an invaluable asset to her team: “We will be using Lorna’s project management and knowledge management systems for the foreseeable future. Our program needed professionalization, and she has provided that. The insights that she will provide, based on her assessment of our coaching stipend, will benefit all of our programmatic staff.” 
  • Alumna Raiza (Class 27, Philippines) is the Program Excellence Manager at the Pilipinas Shell Foundation. She thanks YOU for providing her with the skills and resources to continue her development work in vulnerable sectors and communities: “I am truly grateful to the volunteers, donors, and Board of Directors for supporting Atlas Corps and development workers like me. Your time, energy, expertise and resources provide us with this great space for learning exchange and self-discovery. Thank you, you don’t only help us develop our full potential but you also extend that help to our communities.
  • I encourage you to stay updated on our Superheroes by visiting our blog, where you can also read more about Lorna’s and Raiza’s inspiring work.

I truly cannot express enough the impact your ongoing support has on our Community, and we are happy to have you by our side as we move forward into the future!

Thank you for the ongoing support! You continue to inspire Atlas Corps and our global community of 1,200 leaders from 112 countries! Yes, we continue to expand and welcome two new countries in 2022: Ivory Coast and Singapore!

In addition, 2022 is an extra exciting year for Atlas Corps. We are launching #AtlasCorps2025 - a strategy process to create our path forward.

Our CEO Bidjan shared his thoughts in a recent blog 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:

  1. There is a huge sense of urgency for us to do more for young people
  2. We have a unique window to create opportunities regardless of location and background
  3. We are bringing a great team of people and organizations together for this journey

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.


We look forward to getting YOU involved! Stay tuned for details!



P.S. We invite you to stay tuned for the latest updates on the Atlas Corps Blog. You can also follow #AtlasCorps2025.
