The #AtlasCorps10 Year Celebration continues! Today, we feature our partnerships—individual and organizational.

We also celebrate with Bonus Day—your gift to Atlas Corps will be matched! We invite you to join our celebration with a gift of $20, $50, or $100. All support directly benefits our network of Fellows—global leaders who have dedicated a year of service and continue to make an impact at home and abroad.

Your support achieves results! Recently, we asked our Alumni the benefit of the Atlas Corps Fellowship. Their response:

  • 65% attributed Atlas Corps for helping them obtain their current position.

  • 90% said they would not be achieving the same level of impact without the Atlas Corps experience.

  • 93% said the “network” was the most significant benefit of the Fellowship.

“The Atlas Corps Fellow network is a knowledge base for me. Whenever I need to learn about a new sector, new country or region, a new business model, there is always an expert in the Alumni that I can reach out to and learn from”, shared one Alum.

In 10 years, we have engaged 450 Fellows from 75 countries. We have hundreds of Alumni throughout the world. It is all about the network and the partnerships that continue to help us achieve positive impact.

Today, you have the opportunity to again show your support as an active partner of Atlas Corps and inspire these global leaders!

Now, read on for more exciting partnerships within the Atlas Corps network!

Global Partnerships Week 2016: The Importance of an Inspiring Network  
circulitos newsletter 2Washington, DC — Teamwork achieves goals on and off the playing field. In the arena of international development, it takes an effective team to achieve impact. Global Partnerships Week celebrates the power of partnerships. Atlas Corps highlighted our partnerships by engaging Fellows in three key events. First, Atlas Corps tabled at the Partnerships Practitioners Forum: Transforming Ideas into Impact, hosted by the U.S. Department of State Secretary's Office of Global Partnerships, U.S. Agency for International Development, and Concordia.

Second, Atlas Corps collaborated with USAID in the panel discussion: Diaspora, Disasters, and Partnerships: The Critical Role Public-Private Partnerships Play in Promoting Development and Diplomacy Around the World. The event analyzed  the role of public-private partnerships in promoting diaspora engagement and development. Atlas Corps Fellow Saqib Riaz (Pakistan, Class 18, Host: Meridian International), spoke during the event, “(As a Fellow) I learned the importance of supporting emerging leaders and creating networks and entrepreneurship development.”

Third, Fellows shared their perspective in a blog series with the USAID Center for International Disaster Information, called "Strengthening Partnerships with Emerging Global Leaders.”
