Background

Every year, Resolve convenes and provides support to 20 extraordinary and diverse individuals from the community as part of our social justice fellowship program. They have strong interest and potential for social justice leadership and are committed to the theme of the year. This year, our fellowship is on the theme Wellbeing Reimagined: inclusive and accessible health for all. Each year, the fellowship explores a different theme, but the model stays the same: a program that combines human rights education, campaigning skills and leadership development. It is a community for mutual support and learning and we offer 8 group workshops and mentoring to help the fellows build their capacity and leadership for social justice.

What we have

We have the tools and experience designing and facilitating interactive events that build an intimate and supportive community for developing leadership. In each event, you can learn from community leaders, mentors, and fellows from diverse walks of life and gather new insights on social justice and inclusion. We adopt a human rights based approach and a participatory approach in our work.

Why this is important

COVID-19 has brought us a new normal and the opportunity to try new ways of creating meaningful experiences and connections. The fellowship events are adapted and converted whilst keeping the interactive and safe space for the emerging social justice leaders for mutual support and learning. This volunteer role is essential to the facilitation of interactive activities during the events. You will also help create an accessible learning and sharing environment for fellows with different accessibility needs and support building a new pipeline of community leaders in Hong Kong.

What we do

Our Mission: We exist to inspire, empower and connect emerging leaders to bring about inclusive social change. Our Vision: We believe in a Hong Kong where everyone is heard and can take everyday action for their community. Our Values: Rights, Equality, Solidarity, Organization, Leadership, Voice and Empowerment. Our Community: Our people and partners come from diverse sectors and backgrounds. We are stronger together. Our Organization: In May 2017, Resolve was founded with one question in mind: in an age of increasing polarization and intolerance, how can we build more inclusive and accepting societies? We believe the answer rests with communities themselves, harnessing their own power to bring about positive social change.
