With a lean staff and budget, it helps connect the next generation of social impact leaders to mentorship, resources, and each other. Resolution builds skills and community among both its fellows and its volunteers.

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.

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.

I've loved my time with Resolution, as it has given me the opportunity to support student social impact entrepreneurs using innovative approaches to tackle big problems thoughout the world. In my role as a Resolution Guide, I've worked closely with one such entrepreneur, and have been personally rewarded as I saw her project grow from a business plan to a revenue generating non-profit.

I began volunteering with the Resolution Project a little over a year ago and have since been impressed by the organization's team of devoted staff members, level of communication, ever-expanding network, and far reaching global impact. I'm constantly in awe of the amazing work the Resolution Fellows are doing all over the world. Before they've even graduated college, each Fellow has touched the lives of some of the world's most vulnerable individuals and has transformed the way entire communities live, through providing them with clean environments, food and water, sound housing, employment, education, extra curricular activities, and so much more. I hope to see Resolution continuing to expand, developing young leaders, and creating positive and sustainable change throughout the world.

I've been a volunteer with Resolution over the past year in several capacities. I was initially drawn to the organization by its mission of developing socially responsible young leaders and empowering them to make an impact today, and its incredibly passionate leadership team, staff members, volunteers and, of course the Resolution Fellows! The longer I volunteer with Resolution, the more impressed and inspired I am by the people and the projects that the Fellows are working on: the projects address many important issues in communities in need across the world and the resources that Resolution provides to the young entrepreneurs are very broad and often critical. Resolution has made great achievements in 2013 and the first half of 2014, and I am excited to work with Resolution and see it continue to grow and thrive in the future!

My relationship with Resolution started in 2010 as a Fellow and later as a volunteer, which has given me the opportunity to both see Resolution grow as an organization and to understand the depth of its support and resources for the community of Fellows. I have continued to be a part of Resolution as a volunteer because I believe the work they are doing is truly empowering a dynamic group of socially responsible young leaders and I am excited to see the impact of their ventures! The level of communication and unity of effort among Resolution's leadership is hard to match and I am proud to be a part of the Resolution community.

I have been a volunteer with the Resolution Project since 2011 and have enjoyed every minute of it. In this time I have been fortunate to serve as a mentor to three wonderful fellows working on projects in Australia and in Uganda. Resolution is unique in that we provide our fellows with the tools and the network that they need to succeed immediately. The system of support that the fellows receive from day one is unparalleled.

I have been working with The Resolution Project since 2009 and have had the pleasure of watching it grow from a team of five to a team of hundreds. The whole network of volunteers is so dedicated and so passionate about the cause, and the organization continues to gain momentum and grow more and more quickly. The result can be seen in the support given to the Resolution Fellows around the world, who have started ventures across six continents and are changing the world with Resolution's help.

I have been involved with The Resolution Project for over two years. When I started, the organization worked with one partner and took on a handful of new Fellows each year. After what has been a year of unprecedented and tremendous growth both in terms of incoming Fellows and new volunteers, I am thrilled that the organization has put so much effort into developing a strategy and an actionable framework to ensure that each Fellow receives the same high quality, individualized mentorship that makes the organization's model so distinct and special. This could not happen without the tremendous dedication of our volunteer leadership and the tireless efforts of our wonderful full-time staff members.
