Yes, with so many cultural, country, and religious celebrations occurring in these weeks, I thought it an appropriate greeting. It is one of the many benefits of being part of the multicultural environment that is Atlas Corps. We celebrate Holi, Passover, Easter, Ramadan and many other special events throughout the year. It is part of our global movement to connect people across borders through shared experience. In addition, our Host Organizations in both the United States and Colombia that engage these Fellows experience these milestones as well. It is an added benefit of hosting an Atlas Corps Fellow. In the spirit of celebration, I have three simple requests before you start your weekend to help us continue building the global movement that is Atlas Corps:
Thank you, in advance, for helping with these simple requests. You are the Atlas Corps network. When you act local, you impact global and inspire our global movement. I hope to see (or hear you) on our April 2, Global Launch - Host Organization Recruitment Event!
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend!
Scott Beale, Atlas Corps Founder & CEO

is a finance specialist turned nonprofit leader after working with the USAID Local Government Reform Project. She became an Atlas Corps Fellow to serve at Points of Light in Atlanta, Georgia, to engage with their Corporate Service Council - the premier national platform for advancing corporate volunteerism in the United States and abroad. Cristina created a three module e-course on skills-based volunteering. "Her beautiful spirit, professional demeanor coupled with her exceptional talent and skills make her an absolute joy to be around. She came to this organization willing and ready to do anything we asked of her, with very little direction, and she was always willing to explore new opportunities while tackling any challenge that comes her way with grace,” Natalie Smith, Director, Corporate Relations at Points of Light.
