SVCs in Michigan and Massachusetts

In February, we traveled to Dearborn, Michigan, and Boston, Massachusetts for Social Venture Challenges with Henry Ford College and Harvard National Model United Nations, respectively. We were thrilled to award the Resolution Fellowship to nine teams comprising of 19 young leaders. After a period of onboarding, we will proudly welcome them to the Resolution community and help them launch and grow their social ventures.
