“I started volunteering at DYLOTT as a program /admin assistant in August 2020 during my postgraduate studies in project management. I was referred by an ex volunteer who told me her experience with the organizationchanged her life.
It has definitely changed my life too. As a volunteer with DYLOTT, I have been exposed to a large network of industry experts and real life experiences. I was opportune to attend the Montreal Model United Nations last November and it was an insightful experience. It was my first time but it was so intriguing seeing fellow young delegates negotiate and vote on different notions with high-level professionalism. This was eye-opening for me and taught me a lot about leadership and negotiation on a higher level.
Lastly, having this experience on my resume has gotten me so many interviews and also landed me a good job with a pioneer organization within 3 months of graduation. I have also grown within DYLOTT beyond being a volunteer and I’m always thankful that I made that decision then when I was in school.”

“I was referred to the DYLOTT Young Professionals Program at a critical stage of my career as I had just completed Post Graduate studies and was looking to enter the workforce. I applied to the program as I felt it would help me network with other professionals and provide an avenue for continued professional development.
I was not disappointed! I was fully engaged at each session as I interacted with other participants who brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. The program brought in various dynamic presenters and speakers on a variety of topics. I was given several opportunities to develop my leadership acumen as I supported the planning and execution of the first organized Speaker series put on by DYLOTT.
I later went on to lead a delegation of program participants to the Future we want Model United Nations Conference held in New York in 2019. I now serve on the organizations Board of Directors and am committed to ensuring that DYLOTT continues to empower youth to reach their full potential.”
