Chad Brown
Program Director, Sunshine Coast

Chad grew up in a small town in country Victoria, Australia, and started his first business at just 19 years old. Delivering an innovative physical activity program to Melbourne primary schools, he helped students to not only be more active and healthy, but also to develop critical life skills, such as teamwork, respect, co-operation and dealing with success and defeat.

Chad’s own ‘Peak Experience’ occurred in his early twenties when he travelled to Uganda to volunteer in rural communities through a not-for-profit organisation that had been set up by his parents after their first visit to the country. He is now the Vice President of ‘HUG – Help Us Grow’ and continues to support the amazing work that HUG and the local communities in Uganda are carrying out on a daily basis.

Chad has also spent ten years living, travelling and working abroad, including five years in Spain and five years in the UK. During this time, he worked in a variety of organisations of all shapes and sizes to improve both employee and customer satisfaction through the constant refinement of user experiences. He now applies this real-world experience and knowledge to help achieve the maximum possible impact in his work at High Resolves.

I am passionate about High Resolves because…

I believe in the limitless power of young people and their critical role in solving the greatest challenges of our time. The opportunity to work for an organisation that facilitates such a powerful movement of global citizens and gives them the skills and confidence that they need to change the world is a humbling and inspiring experience that I’m incredibly grateful for.
