At The Resolution Project (Resolution), we believe that young people can—and should—be the change our world so desperately needs. Founded in 2007, Resolution’s mission is to develop socially responsible young leaders and empower them to make a positive impact today. Through our Social Venture Challenges and Resolution Fellowships, we identify, fund, mentor, and support undergraduate students starting social enterprises to solve some of the world’s most persistent and challenging problems, from healthcare access to climate change. We believe that by empowering young people to bring local, scalable solutions to their communities, we can create a generation of socially responsible leaders committed to building a more just and sustainable world. Today, 500 Resolution Fellows, in 80 countries and 20 U.S. states, are implementing over 300 social ventures in high-impact fields such as sustainable development, gender equality, healthcare, and humanitarian relief. Their efforts have benefited 2.9 million people and counting. We are now seeking exceptional talent to join our growing staff!



This new position contributes to The Resolution Project’s mission by managing the resource and opportunity access for all Resolution Fellows. The Program Manager will take on key responsibilities in developing and managing Resolution’s Pathway Partnership program – a catalog of programmatic partners that serve as sources of potential Fellows, provide opportunities for Fellows, and/or are strategic alliances for the organization.

The candidate should have a flexible schedule, and be prepared to join phone and in-person meetings earlier and later than regular business hours, including some weekends, and be willing to travel when travel reopens.
