With your support, Atlas Corps continues to connect rising global professionals to mission-driven organizations in the United States through our Fellowship programs. Our partnership with these Host Organizations not only provides Fellows with the professional experience to effect change in their home countries but also increases global perspective within the organizations.
Meet Class 47 Fellow Boubacar from Senegal, who is currently serving at CorpsAfrica as their Alumni Association Coordinator. In this role, Boubacar has built a support network for CorpsAfrica volunteers and successfully led their first cohort of the Entrepreneurship Incubator, and formalized their Matching Scholarship Program. Boubacar shares the lasting impact his experience with Atlas Corps and CorpsAfrica will have on his professional career, “During the Fellowship, the immersion sessions with Atlas Corps allowed me to improve my leadership skills and connect with additional expert resources and tools. I discovered and appreciated American culture and learned more about the history and civilization of the United States. I met many inspiring people and attended several professional development events in person and virtually. At the end of my Fellowship, I would be able to manage development programs for non-profit organizations or international organizations and I am also able to start and manage a business.”
Thank you for inspiring leaders like Boubacar through unique opportunities with organizations like CorpsAfrica. We are grateful for your commitment to the Atlas Corps mission and continue to ask for your support this month by sharing our mission with your networks. Join us on November 28 for Giving Tuesday at: https://www.globalgiving.org/donate/717/atlas-corps/. Together as a global community, we can make a difference.
Atlas Corps recently welcomed our newest Fellowship Class, Class 50, bringing us to 1,700+ social change leaders from 116 countries. This dynamic group of innovators hail from Botswana, Cameroon, Colombia, India, and Indonesia, and will be serving full-time at renowned organizations, like the American Red Cross. When I look at how our diverse global network has grown so far, I am thankful for all of your support in helping us engage with rising leaders across the globe. Meet them here!
This is an exciting time for Atlas Corps as we are striving towards more inclusive opportunities, regardless of one’s location. Through our Blended Fellowship program, these Fellows will gain an exciting global perspective through one month of virtual service in their home countries and then approximately eleven months of in-person service in the United States. We look forward to engaging further with our Class 50 Fellows and sharing more with you on their leadership journeys over the next year!
All of this is made possible because of your ongoing support for the Atlas Corps Community. Thank you for continuing to play an integral role by empowering our Fellows with the opportunities to lead positive change within their local communities.

Take Naura, a Fellow from Indonesia. Naura is currently serving in the United States at Advocates for Youth, where she is responsible for global partnerships. Over the past year, she has built partnerships with agencies such the UNESCO Bangkok Office, UNFPA Asia, and the Pacific Regional Office to create sexual and reproductive health resources for educators, activists, and students in the Southeast Asian region. The Fellowship is providing Naura the opportunity to expand her professional experiences, while contributing localized knowledge to ensure success for Advocates for Youth.
Your support is vital to empowering emerging leaders like Naura, and we are proud to be working together to expand access to talent and opportunity across the globe.
