ALUM MAKING FACE SHIELDS FOR HOSPITALS

Hello!

Yes, YOU are a superhero! Over these last few weeks, we have all experienced significant changes to our daily activities and human engagement. You are adapting and we think that makes you a superhero!

We also appreciate your continual support of our Atlas Corps Fellows in the United States. You have provided financial support, care baskets, and messages of support. All of these activities are so appreciated. Thank you!

Atlas Corps is also adapting. We launched our Atlas Corps Responds page to provide ongoing updates. In addition, here are a few highlights of what is happening with us:

  • Class 39 "Blended" Fellowship – Big news! Class 39 started Orientation this week! They will be the pilot participants in an evolution of our model: the “blended” fellowship – Fellows will participate in a blend of virtual and in-person service. Fellows will initiate the Fellowship while in their home countries and complete their service in the United States. Stay tuned for updates!
  • Virtual Learning Community extending our engaging professional development activities to a virtual environment, Atlas Corps will engage more dynamic social impact professionals from around the world in this virtual learning community to advance knowledge and strengthen our global network of changemakers.
  • #BelieveInSuperheroes – We launched this campaign to highlight the amazing work of our Fellows and Alumni as they fight against COVID-19 worldwide. A great example is Nino (Tunisia) who is leading an effort to create face shields for hospitals and Tunisia and globally! Read more at atlascorps.org/tag/believeinsuperheroes/

Atlas Corps sends our support to YOU all the superheroes in our community! Together, we can continue to inspire positive impact in our homes, communities, and the world!

Be well-

Abby
