Reviews for The Resolution Project, Inc.
The Resolution Project is an innovative and forward thinking organization, and volunteering with them has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. The organization believes in the power of our youth to create actionable change in the world. As a volunteer, I’ve worked closely and gotten to know several of their fellows, and am always amazed at the work being done. They also foster an amazingly diverse volunteer network that helps the organization and its impact grow more and more each day.
The Resolution Project is an amazing organization that enables students to make immediate, positive change in their communities. Resolution has inspiring leaders, a large network of volunteers, and a dedicated staff that not only assist Fellows in the operation of their social ventures, but also help Fellows become responsible leaders. The organization’s dedication to the individual is what truly sets it apart from others.
I have yet to work with another organization so committed to the goals that it sets for itself. The Resolution Project's "fellows first" model speaks volumes. Investing time and resources into early stage entrepreneurs and ideas is a feat that very few other organizations have attempted to undertake, and even fewer have executed with as much heart and energy as the Resolution Project has. The entire team is focused on a culture of positive collaboration and giving that inspires the young entrepreneurs that they help to continue pursuing the high goals that they set for themselves.
The Resolution Project is one of the best champions for young, socially-minded individuals. They encourage, provide support and even fund the seemingly crazy, idealistic ideas of today's youth. However, with their backing, those ideas are no longer crazy or idealistic, because they are actually happening and creating positive change. That is what happened with my venture. I was a college student when I came up with an idea that I hoped would change the world. Everyone I knew applauded the concept, but no one put forth any resources that would turn that small dream into a reality. No one, until Resolution. I received $4,000 in start-up funding from Resolution, two fabulous mentors (who I speak with at least monthly) and a network of like-minded peers who continue to inspire me everyday. Every chance I get, I encourage other young, budding social entrepreneurs to apply to be a part of The Resolution Project. The idea is simple, but the results are extraordinary.
Resolution Project invested and believed in myself as a young leader. It provided me the resources, network and assistance to grow in a professional sense. Resolution harnesses the power of young people all across the world creating, innovating and implementing meaningful change within our communities, societies and countries. It assists to raise the platform of youth engagement and demonstrates time and time again through its fellows that young people are indeed, a force for greater change.
While The Resolution Project fosters and develops young leaders from around the world, it also concentrates its efforts on the development and appreciation of its global volunteer base. I've had the pleasure of volunteering with Resolution over the last few years and I'm encouraged to use and grow a skill set that I can also use in my personal life/working life. I'm constantly inspired by Resolution's young Fellows and motivated to believe there won't just be change in the future but there will be change today.
Resolution is dedicated to the empowerment of young people and I can personally say that it has had the biggest impact on my life. Not only do they offer angel investment, but it has given me a network of individuals who believe in my ideas and in me as a fellow. They have opened up a plethora of doors and offered guidance and a network of fellows that are simply priceless! I am thankful to be a part of The Resolution Project and to know that there is such an incredible organization dedicated to the investment of youth for positive social change.
I could speak volumes of praise about the Resolution Project. However, in my experience what truly sets this organization apart is three things: How much they care, the thoroughness with they measure impact and evaluate, and finally the resources they are able to provide their fellows. This is truly an organization to creating long-term social change and they have found a powerful and sustainable way to do so by investing young socially responsible leaders and ensuring they have the opportunity to tackle global challenges and solve the worlds biggest problems.
Resolution is an organization that puts Fellows first. I have seen this in the support of my venture Bee the Change, as well as in all other Fellows. Seed funding for a social venture is only the beginning for this non-profit. Resolution is there to provide a network of connections, mentorship and solution-oriented support, which puts them at the forefront of youth empowerment. I am honored to be a Fellow with The Resolution Project and know them to be worth every star.
As a volunteer, Resolution Project has given me the opportunity to work with amazing and inspiring young social entrepreneurs across a variety of backgrounds. Resolution's influence on its Fellows clearly has an incredible impact, and I truly believe that we are supporting the next generation of inventors and innovators in the social sector and enabling them to make real change happen.
