The Resolution Project was essential in my development as an entrepreneur. They truly help young leaders turn ideas into action. Their support was not only reflected in my personal and professional development, but also in the ones around me as a consequence of my leadership.

I am a guide for the Resolution Project as well as supported Resolution in reviewing future fellows. As a guide I help mentor entrepreneurs with their socially responsible ventures. For example the fellow I currently guide has setup an program in which he employs rural artisans to create leather goods for commercial and corporations, as well as provides workshops in support of educating disadvantaged children. Through the sale of the products he is able to provide a steady salary to the artisans and the profit can be distributed to the communities to enrich education for the children. There are many other examples of these selfless acts that other fellows provide to make the the world a better place. For me the experience has been tremendous. The passion of the Resolution team along with the experienced guides, and amazing fellows is what makes this nonprofit a force.

I’ve participated with the Resolution Project as both a guide and now a guide leader, and it has been a wonderful experience for me personally as I have been exposed to really inspiring young people. I can only hope that I have been helpful to them in return. Resolution is a great organization and I hope to continue to be involved for a long time.

I worked at The Resolution Project for a year as an intern and was fortunate to learn from two amazing and brilliant supervisors! This opportunity personally helped propel my career in the non-profit sector. Resolution is truly an amazing non-profit challenging youth to change the world through innovative social ventures. I am constantly inspired by Fellows (who are tremendously supported by Resolution Mentors, Guides, Board Members and Staff) and the impact they're making to social issues around the world.

The Resolution Project is an amazing nonprofit that allows social entrepreneurs to do good well by connecting them to a network of other social entrepreneurs as well as subject matter experts. My own social venture is where it is today due to the continued support and encouragement of my Resolution Guides and the greater Resolution community. Resolution Fellows, Guides, and Board Members are some of the most inspirational people I have met to date, and they push Resolution Fellows to be their best in all aspects of their lives. Even with the growing Resolution community, the Resolution leadership and staff have successfully maintained the close-knit nature of the organization. I cannot wait to see how Resolution continues to grow and to sculpt promising social entrepreneurs and social impact professionals.

The Resolution Project is a truly incredible organization and a wonderful community to be a part of. The Fellowship has provided me with unique opportunities to grow and develop my social venture from a summer project into a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a Fellow, I have been able to work with other Fellows, Guides, Staff, and Volunteers. Each interaction with a Resolution community member leaves a lasting impact and each person's commitment to playing their part to positively impact the world is inspiring.

I have had an overall awesome experience with Resolution. As a Resolution Fellow, I've seen how the organization cared about my idea and also my own personal and career growth. Throughout my fellowship, I really value the way my mentor has been able to connect me to many people in my field of interest and these conversations have been extremely helpful in moving forward and gaining other perspectives I had not had before. I also value the unique community of fellows that Resolution has cultivated and brought together. The community of fellows and mentors is constantly inspiring me.
