In the past month, I crossed multiple time zones, welcomed new Board Members, greeted our 10th Class of Fellows, and received confirmation on two major initiatives between Atlas Corps and the U.S. State Department. An average month at the office, perhaps? A major reason to celebrate, definitely! Everyday, our vision of a world connected through global service, innovation, and collaboration is being realized. While I understand your schedule is busy, I think you will enjoy a few Atlas Corps Updates - highlights that you have helped us achieve.

P.S. Of course, how could I forget our recent participation in the 2012 Nexus Global Youth Summit?! Atlas Corps staff, Fellows, and alumni from across the United States and Colombia traveled to New York to participate in this unique gathering of hundreds of leaders from the business, nonprofit, and philanthropic sectors. Our Fellow Michael Solis (USA, Class 10, Host: Ahmsa) shared his reflections on the event in his recent Huffington Post article.
