Resolution Social Venture Challenge
The Resolution Project, Inc. is delighted to be bringing its tenth Resolution Social Venture Challenge to the 2017 Winter Youth Assembly at the United Nations.
Founded in 2007, Resolution is a U.S. 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to fostering youth leadership development around the world through collaborative social entrepreneurship.
The Resolution Social Venture Challenge allows undergraduate students to build teams and submit their plans for actual social ventures that will make a positive impact today. Resolution will provide a grant of up to US $3,000 and dynamic, hands-on mentorship for the winning Resolution Fellows and their ventures.
There are currently over 250 Resolution Fellows working on 6 continents in diverse, high-impact fields such as human rights, energy, environment, education, technology, and community development.
All undergraduate attendees at the YA are invited to propose impactful, socially-responsible projects (“Ventures”) through the multi-stage SVC:
Teams will sign-up and complete a 3-step proposal outlining the Venture implementation and sustainability. Resolution will review eligible submissions and invite semifinalists to participate in-person. Steps 1 and 2 of the 3-step proposal are due January 11, 2017 at 11:59pm EST, step 3 is due January 25, 2017 at 11:59pm EST. Extensions may be possible, so please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any deadline questions or extension requests.
