About Resolution Project

At Resolution Project, we see the spark of passion in young people.  We work with them to build it into a lifetime of impact. People do not need decades of experience before they can start making a difference in the world. Especially while young, they have the energy, idealism, and ambition to address complex challenges—today. But they need a community that invests and believes in their leadership. Resolution provides this support to young innovators around the world so they can break barriers and ignite meaningful change.

The Resolution Fellowship is the core of our work. To become a Resolution Fellow, young people first compete in our Social Venture Challenge (SVC), pitching ideas for social enterprises in their communities. Those who are selected become Fellows, receiving seed funding and lifelong support. Resolution is there, even if they evolve or pivot from their original ideas, with global resources, mentorship, expertise, and community, along with a growing network of local partners. These components come together to form a proven model that identifies promising young leaders, launches their first ventures, and sticks with them as they grow.

Since our beginning in 2008, Resolution Project has launched and supported the growth of over 600 Fellows, working across six continents and in over 80 countries. Altogether, our Fellows have impacted the lives of more than 4.6 million people around the globe. Through Resolution Project, young leaders receive unmatched guidance and wisdom from a team of partners, volunteers, and innovative peers around the globe. We remain committed—today and always— to all of our Fellows and to expanding our outreach to lower-resourced communities. 

Position Summary

The Program Coordinator will join a high-performing team to help ensure Resolution’s achievement of key objectives, specifically contributing to Resolution’s mission by supporting Resolution Fellows throughout the Fellowship lifecycle. 

This is a new role working closely with both Assistant Directors of Programs to provide administrative support to Fellows as they onboard onto the program and facilitate access to venture-related, professional resources, opportunities, and educational engagement. The Program Coordinator will also be responsible for key data management tasks and helping to draft content and resources for Resolution’s global audience. This staff member will both support ongoing projects in existing systems and have opportunities to build out new structures.

The candidate must have a flexible schedule, be prepared to join meetings and conference calls earlier and later than regular business hours – including some weekends – with appropriate compensation and/or schedule adjustments, and be willing to occasionally travel when it is safe to do so.
