This is a Brief Introduction to The Venus Project
While The Venus Project has no leaders–a strange statement to those who have never encountered such a organization before, but the person who founded The Venus Project is called Jacque Fresco.
There are many others who have been a part of The Venus Project for a long time; one such person is Roxanne Meadows. “She studied technical and architectural rendering and model making under Jacque Fresco for 4 years.” 
Jacque Fresco lived through the great depressions and “realized the earth was still the same place, manufacturing plants were still intact, and resources were still there, but people didn’t have money to buy the products. Jacque Fresco felt the rules of the game we play by were outmoded and damaging.” 
The Venus Project has lots of videos you can watch and the media people are always making new stuff. These are the official YouTube account for The Venus Project:
How a Resource Based Economy would work:
This is a sample video form the above-mentioned website: The Venus Project-Resource Based Economy :

“Imagine a world where war is outdated, there is no shortage of resources, and every human being enjoys a high standard of living.”
The Venus Project Supporters, Volunteers, and Mentors
The Venus Project changed the way it interacts with volunteers. The website was changed and a lot of the older hyperlinks (URL) no longer work, so they have now been updated in this article (2017).
You could be a part of making our future a better place to live in. Where everyone has enough food. There is no war. There is no poverty.

Be Part of Changing the World to a Resource Based Economy
Some people come to The Venus Project expecting global change, or local changes to suddenly occur once they join. Currently The Venus Project is trying to inform as many of the 7 billion people on this earth that a solution to our problems exist—that we don’t need to have war, poverty, starvation, debt, and unnecessary human suffering.
The Venus Project will only work if the entire world’s people unite and become one community. That may seem impossible to you who—wish change right now, but even science concedes that this will eventually happen, not only on a planetary scale, but on much larger scales that includes our entire solar system if we choose to venture into space: The Kardashev Scale: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kardashev_scale. Another strong factor of influencing the change over to a Resource Based Economy is the increasing automation in our world, it is quite possible that many of our industries will employ no people at all eventually, and that would have a devastating effect on on the world’s people and their lives; since under the monetary system people need to work to get paid.
Are we ready for a transition to a resource based economy right now? The resounding answer is yes, and there will be a transition period, that may last at minimum 20 years or less depending on technology as new cities are built all over the world to make sure every person in this world has housing, enough food, health care, transport, education access and many more things.
The only thing holding us back is that many of the world people still do not know a solution exists; and large scale efforts (that must include all of the worlds people) to change things is not occurring at the moment—and that may depend on how bad we let the economic system get before a demand for change is made (or a forced solution is imposed on us by governments: that may not be in our best interests if based on the existing economic system).
