Scott Beale is the founder of Atlas Service Corps and an experienced social entrepreneur who has started three citizen sector organizations and helped thousands of people of his generation become agents for social change. He has worked on four continents, with citizen, government, and business leaders from around the world, and through Atlas Corps has pioneered an innovative, sustainable, and scalable way for revolutionizing international volunteerism.
For 10 years, Beale was a recognized leader of the Millennial Generation as the author of Millennial Manifesto: A Youth Activist Handbook, and the founder of MillennialPolitics.com. He has published many articles and delivered over 300 speeches on his "10 Steps To Change the World." He has appeared on CBS discussing the politics of his generation. After the 2004 Election, the Youth Vote Coalition named him one of "30 People Under 30 Changing Politics in America."
In addition to his political activism, Beale is an experienced social entrepreneur. As the Mid Atlantic Director of Youth Venture (a sister organization of Ashoka: Innovators for the Public), he helped over 1,000 young people start citizen sector organizations. While at Youth Venture, he helped expand the organization from approximately 3 to 25, in large part due to a partnership with AmeriCorps VISTA and the Corporation for National Service. He also founded a small nonprofit organization, 2100 Fund, which organizes large parties to raise money for charity.
He became active organizing students with Rock the Vote (RTV), taking him to both the New Hampshire primaries, and the Democratic National Convention. He then helped register 1,000 students on-campus, organizing the first-ever successful election of two students to the local government. By the end of Beale's senior year, his leadership on campus won him the recognition of the university president and both campus papers, which labeled him one of "the most prominent students on campus." Additionally, Beale was nominated for the school's highest honor, the Spronk Medal.
Since college, his activism has extended beyond the United States, three times taking him to Bosnia, once as the youngest member of an advance U.S. Department of State group. While there, he became the youngest Core Supervisor from any country for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), an intergovernmental organization responsible for supervising elections in war-recovering Bosnia.
He returned overseas in 2004 to coordinate the U.S. government's efforts to fight human trafficking in India, helping coordinate $9 million of U.S. government resources to citizen and international organizations in India who were fighting modern day slavery. He also wrote reports for the U.S. Department of State on trafficking and issues related to trafficking, such as female feticide and child labor.
