ISERH EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR INDUCTED AS AN ATLAS CORPS FELLOW IN WASHINGTON DC
The 23 Atlas Corps Fellows of class 23 from 16 countries
It is a Class 23 of Atlas Corps Fellowship under Emerging Global Leaders Initiative where 23 Global Superheroes were selected from 16 countries across global continents, flown them down to Washington DC and got them inducted as Atlas Corps Fellows on Monday, Jan. 16 2017.
Atlas Service Corps, Inc. (Atlas Corps) is a U. S. nonprofit organization that for ten years has brought the world's best nonprofit leaders to the U. S. on 6 - 18 month J-1 trainee fellowships.
These Class 23 consisting of 23 Fellows are a part of 100 emerging civil society leaders the U. S. Department of State and Atlas Corps jointly signed to bring for long-term professional development, on September 23, 2014 at the Clinton Global Initiative where President Obama announced the partnership called 'Emerging Global Leaders Initiative (EGLI) - Atlas Corps Fellowship.
Given the number of initiatives, programs and social change events founded and coordinated by our ever vibrant dynamic young Executive Director, Abdulahi Abayomi Abdulraheem (31 years), one would never be surprised that he made the list of the 23.
Abdulahi Abayomi Abdulraheem
ISERH Exc. Director
It is worthy of note that Abdulahi founded and serves as the Executive Director of less-than-3-years'-old Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health (ISERH), and that through this organization: lots of lives being touched, lots of leaders being raised, and many youths being taken back to schools. He waxed stronger to enlist this organization among the 15 most-engaged nonprofit organizations by the Nigerian Government on national issues. Through his efforts at ISERH, Npower Program Application deadline was extended by a month and he made sure that his organization provides an online help for all Npower Volunteers during and after Npower Assessment through facebook page named Npower Assessment Help Line (www.facebook.com/npowerassessmenthelpline). His organization stepped in to help several Npower Volunteers in different states during verification and it still provides relevant information as regards that.
It is interesting to note that Abdulahi is an alumnus of the Africa-America Institute (New York) after he benefitted from their scholarship program to study Social Sector Management (SSM) at Enterprise Development Center (EDC), Pan-Atlantic University. He is an award winner of the Life Changers' Most Replicable Project Award (2015). He is a fellow and alumnus of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) of the President Obama, West Africa Regional Leadership Center. He tops the list of 100 Brightest Young Minds of Barclays Group in July 2016.
