High Resolves is a trusted provider of high-quality learning experiences that help young people develop critical life skills, including empathy, resilience and independent thinking.
High Resolves partners with schools to equip young people with life skills through delivering professionally facilitated, immersive student workshops; training educators to deliver supporting lessons in the classroom that complement existing subject areas; and offering real-world project-based learning programs where students can apply their new skills to help solve existing problems in society.
Through the High Resolves program, young people explore their own exposure to bias, misinformation and manipulation, and in doing so, develop greater social and emotional skills, resilience to adversity, and explore ways they can work together to promote security and hope for the future.
High Resolves will work with over 250 Australian schools in 2021. Our expert facilitators are high-energy, deeply engaging and have a wealth of experience working with young people from diverse backgrounds, with diverse learning styles and in diverse school environments.
About the team
Our team is one of a kind. We have a growth mindset and we live by our ten character traits: Passionate, Committed, Purpose-led, Curious, Bold, Pioneering, Rigorous, Relentless, Sincere and Adaptable. We are a local team in a global organisation, bringing a range of experience from teaching to law, social work to financial services, sales to communications – each of us has taken our own path to our current role, but we share a common belief in the vision and mission of High Resolves.
As a High Resolves Program Manager and Facilitator, you will work with a diverse range of schools to deliver the High Resolves program to high school students. You’ll facilitate dynamic workshops and build relationships with multiple schools, both face to face and online.
You will also be involved in business development activities to further grow the reach and impact of the program, building relationships with Principals and school leaders, as well as youth organisations, universities and businesses across Sydney.

- Deliver professional development to teachers in schools and at centralised locations, and to youth workers in relevant organisations.
- Maintain strong relationships with staff at all participating and prospective schools, promoting all aspects of the High Resolves program.
- Deliver presentations and meetings in schools, youth organisations, and conferences to communicate and demonstrate the value of the program to all stakeholders.
- In consultation with the High Resolves Australian Director of Curriculum & Impact, ensure the appropriate rigour of evaluation and success metric reporting is applied to all initiatives.
Why you’ll love the role
You will thrive on the opportunity to influence the life trajectories of thousands of high school students as you lead them through immersive in-school workshops designed to develop critical citizenship competencies and build personal and social capabilities.
