Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank YOU! As we get ready to celebrate American Thanksgiving, I want to take this moment to appreciate you as a valued member of our community! Your support enables Atlas Corps to build bridges amongst global professionals and to engage emerging leaders on talent journeys to inspire positive impact at home and abroad! We achieved 1,500 Atlas Corps Fellows and Scholars from 115 countries with your support!

Last week, right before presenting our work on a panel at the AidEx conference in Brussels, I met our Alumna Patience (Nigeria, Class 33, Host: The Center for Teen Empowerment) who served in Boston, returned to Nigeria to work in development, and is currently completing her Masters degree in the UK. She is one of those 1,500 members of our Community who are on a talent journey making a difference for others who inspire us to continue to invest with your support as we move into 2023!

I hope we can inspire you to continue be part of these Atlas Corps journeys with these three simple actions:

  • Meet Our Community - Meet our Fellows and Scholars at and
  • Share Our Application - Right now, we are recruiting emerging leaders from Andorra, Bolivia, India, Nicaragua, and Spain. We have special opportunities for them in 2023! Learn more at
  • Mark Your Calendars - Join me on GivingTuesday, November 29, 12:30 PM EST for a livestream update to our community. You can learn more at

Together, let's continue moving forward as a global community. Let's support talented individuals, like Patience, who are inspired by our passion for service and motivated by our interaction with one another!

Let’s end 2022 inspired and embrace the potential of 2023!
