Fellow, Boubacar, Inspires Change at CorpsAfrica

By Corinna Hoerst | Acting CEO, Atlas Corps

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: Together as a global community, we can make a difference.
