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.

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.

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.

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.

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"!

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.

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 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.

I have had an amazing experience as a Resolution Fellow! The Resolution Project has provided tremendous support for my social venture, One Sun Health. Pairing us with dedicated mentors, pro-bono services, and organizational support, we have grown and expanded past what I ever thought was feasible. In addition to advice specific to my venture, Resolution has helped me with major life and career decisions. I look forward to being involved with the Resolution Project long after my two year fellowship!

As a Resolution Fellow, my personal, professional, and organizational goals are heavily supported by the Resolution Project. The Resolution Project has provided my social venture, One Sun Health, with the financial tools and pro-bono resources necessary to ensure it's continued growth in rural South Africa. Additionally, the Resolution Project has offered myself and my colleagues an incredible array of mentorship opportunities which have allowed us to connect with individuals who are achieving amazing things in the global health and international development fields. The Resolution leadership and my volunteer guides are passionate, dedicated role models who have empowered myself and others like me to achieve great success as young social entrepreneurs.

I joined the Resolution Project as a Fellow in March 2013. The Resolution Project enabled our idea of empowering women through photography into the organisation of Lensational, which has impacted over 150 disenfranchised women in Hong Kong, Myanmar and Pakistan. The focus of the Resolution Project on empowering students, an untapped group of talents in social entrepreneurship, makes it an extremely unique organisation. The sense of mission I observe among all Resolution Fellows is the best testimony to the impact that Resolution is making to young people all over the world.

Right after securing a Resolution Fellowship last year, I was able to expand my venture from just a great idea to actually achieving that idea in less than seven months. Because of the Resolution Project, more than 800 Haitian children from Jacmel received free dental supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste) as well as proper brushing technique to prevent tooth decay. I am a successful testimony of the positive impact of The Resolution Project have in young leaders like myself . My name is Jean Paul Laurent, Founder of Unspoken Smiles Foundation, and I am a proud Resolution Fellow.

I have had the great fortune to work with the Resolution Project in a variety of capacities since 2009. In 2009 I was selected as a Fellow and have benefited beyond my wildest dreams from the mentorship and support network that Resolution provides. The group of volunteers, from board members to mentors, truly shares a community mentality and is full of expertise, insight, and enthusiasm. I highly recommend getting involved with this positive and supportive community. Volunteers, donors, fellows and other supporters are always welcomed with open arms and generally have opportunities to make a huge impact from day one.
