The Resolution Project is not only an organization, but a community of individuals brought together by a shared passion of social good and youth empowerment. I feel honored to be a Resolution Fellow and to be part of a community that is fully invested on helping fellows succeed in every aspect of their lives. It is a privilege to be part of a global network of young fellows, guides, staff, and board members that truly care about every member and about what we do. With members coming from a diverse range of backgrounds, who are tackling multiple global issues, the inspiration and support is inexhaustible. I am very thankful to The Resolution Project and couldn't recommend it highly enough to those who want to join a wonderful community of global change makers.

The Resolution Project is undoubtedly a great service provider for young entrepreneurs who are looking for the right support to help them nurture their ideas and grow their social ventures. I have been with Resolution for a year now as one of their fellows and in that amount of time, my resolution guides and the friendly staff at resolution have provided me with a networking platform, access to resources and business acumen tools necessary for me to develop my venture from just a simple idea to a community organisation that is ready to scale. I highly recommend The Resolution Project to anyone who is looking to make a social impact anywhere in the world.

A wonderful organization making a lifelong commitment to young social entrepreneurs. Many Resolution Fellows have already achieved significant positive impact in their home communities. I can't wait to see how many more lives they will improve over the course of their careers, thanks to Resolution's investment.

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.

The fellowship changed my perspective of social entrepreneurship and helped me become a better and more organized changemaker. When we think of fellowships such as the Resolution Fellowship, we usually think of financial support, but resolution really makes an investment into the person and the way in which we can be more socially responsible in all phases of our lives.

The Resolution Project is an incredible organization helping young people not only launch their social ventures but embark on a lifelong dedication to social entrepreneurship. Resolution's holistic approach to youth development is novel. They provide comprehensive support that really allows Resolution Fellows to develop and thrive as young adults who are aspiring to make a positive and lasting difference in the world. Resolution also involves so many different actors in its program that it is also beneficial to the community, inspiring volunteers, sponsors, staff, donors, and just about anyone involved with Resolution to live and act in a socially responsible manner. I would highly recommend engaging with Resolution and finding out more about their work!

While I've only been a volunteer with Resolution for about a year, I'm consistently astounded by the commitment of the staff, the inquisitiveness of the fellows, and the enthusiasm by other mentors and volunteers. This organization has had a tremendous impact on two of my close friends, and continues to engage young innovators from around the world. It's special, in my volunteer role, to feel that my thoughts matter and that others wish to get to help me grow in my own ways too.

Resolution helped me as a freshman in college to realize what was my calling in life. They trusted in me when I was young and inexperienced, they helped me to channel my passion for social change and mentor me in a crucial stage of my career through the Resolution Fellowship. Thank to their support I discovered that I can always "be the change"!

The Resolution Project is a great organization that helps the whole world by training young people, empowering them and making changes throughout the youth’s ideas. This is one of the best charity because the Resolution not only give you the grant also give you support by providing mentors who help you with the development of the project and also with your professional life. Another very important thing that makes The Resolution unique is the opportunities to the fellows such us leadership, education etc. in conclusion this organization is amazing.

Resolution Project is a community of a kind! It believes and invests in young people of courage who dare to do something to address challenges in communities across the world. Through its social venture challenges, the Resolution Project identifies young people of courage, and gives them support with guidance and mentorship. I know amazing young people in the fellowship program who have helped communities defeat cholera by providing access to clean water, taught others skills to improve their income, and more. This organisation not only gives young people an opportunity to serve but also prepares them for bolder challenges ahead in their careers and leadership journeys.

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.

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.
