Today, I have one important request for you. It needs to happen today and it will forever impact our tomorrow. Support Atlas Corps via our GlobalGiving page. Today only, all donations made will be matched by 30% - while the match funds last. Your contribution of $20 turns to $26; $50 turns to $65; and $1,000 turns to $1,300. So, donate early and invite others. Your contribution is a direct investment in our Fellows - global leaders from around the world who dedicate a year of service in the United States and Latin America and then return home to apply that knowledge to improve their own countries. Is it effective? Yes! Our network of 140 Fellows from 40 countries demonstrate the power of international exchange every day as they advocate for maternal health at Population Action International or engage teens at Youth Service America. We are more than an organization. We are YOU. We are ME. We are a MOVEMENT. We are inspired individuals who share a vision of a world connected through global service, innovation, and collaboration. Today, I ask you to show your support for this movement with a donation. I share with you three success stories of Atlas Corps alumni who completed their year of service and went forth to positively impact the global nonprofit sector.
Colombian Alumna Continues Commitment to Service with Creation of Intercultural Exchange ProgramIn 2008, Andrea Calderon (Colombia, Class 2, HOST: ThinkImpact - pictured at left) arrived in Washington, DC, to build a college-based exchange and social entrepreneurship program that offers college students the opportunities to live and work in Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, and South Africa. Inspired, Andrea returned to Colombia with the vision of creating an exchange opportunity for people to engage in Colombia, her homeland. Soon thereafter was formed, Heart for Change, Colombia Volunteer Program - a social business that encourages intercultural exchanges through bringing volunteers from around the world to work in development programs in Colombia. Recently, Heart for Change launched a collaboration with Partners of the Americas (another Atlas Corps Host Organization) to strategically expand volunteerism throughout Colombia. Andrea met Partners of the Americas during her Atlas Corps Fellowship and credits Atlas Corps for helping her leverage a global network to realize this dream.

It focuses not only on what Fellows get out of the experience, but also in what Host Organizations can learn from Fellows."
