The Resolution Project was founded by a group of young professionals who had attended youth leadership summits as university students and had been frustrated with being the “leaders of tomorrow.” Resolution’s founders believe that university students have the energy, idealism and will to solve some of the world’s most persistent and challenging problems, and should be leading today.
Resolution was founded in 2007 to develop and empower young leaders so they can pursue socially responsible solutions to issues affecting communities around the world. We designed our Social Venture Challenge (“SVC”) to be an inspiring call to action for university students with an idea for a social venture and we created the Resolution Fellowship to be an ecosystem of support to help them implement their idea and develop as socially responsible leaders.
Resolution initially partnered with Harvard World Model United Nations (“WorldMUN”), an annual youth summit, which brings together more than 2,000 young leaders from around the world.
We hosted a simulated SVC at WorldMUN’s 2008 conference in Mexico to test the concept. The response from conference attendees was overwhelming and more than 50 teams participated, so we returned to WorldMUN’s 2009 conference in The Hague ready to award the first Resolution Fellowships. Resolution has since hosted SVCs at every WorldMUN conference since, including our 50th SVC in Panama in 2018.
In 2012, we began partnering with other youth conferences and universities around the world to bring our SVC and Fellowship to more young leaders and broaden our impact. Today, there are nearly 500 Resolution Fellows on six continents working on ventures addressing issues ranging from basic needs, food, development, education, energy and the environment, health and wellness, equality and empowerment, and humanitarian relief.

“If you have an interest in international development, social entrepreneurship, and empowering young people to make a difference in the lives of others, The Resolution Project may be the next move in your professional career. Every day, I am deeply inspired by our Resolution Fellows who are driven to solve the most pressing global issues of our time through entrepreneurship. They are bold, courageous, and resilient, and I am very humbled to have been given the unique opportunity to mentor, support, and empower them as our leaders of today. Since I started my position at The Resolution Project in 2018, I have continued to thrive in my profession, and I attribute that to the limitless support that I receive from my talented, passionate team of colleagues who work tirelessly to carry forth our mission.”Lauren Loftin, Program Manager
