Resolution requires that all staff be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine (or approved for an exemption as a reasonable accommodation due to a medical reason or sincerely held religious belief). Resolution abides by each state’s requirements and acknowledges those may change over time. If moved forward to the phone screen stage, you will have the chance to ask a team member more about this requirement.

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.
