Aderinsola (Ade) Aiyedogbon,
In my opinion, any problem/need can be solved with great planning and teamwork. This has led me to become a social change champion, community mobilizer, advocate, and development specialist who has dedicated her career to increasing the capacity for marginalized, racialized, and at-risk communities.
I have over a decade of experience in People Management, Project Management, Education, and Counselling, with a strong background in Information Technology.
As an immigrant, I am passionate about assisting newcomers in successfully transitioning into jobs that match their own skills, capabilities, and interests. I believe that investing in youth specifically is an opportunity to invest in our future, therefore we amplify their voices and ensure their ability to interact with the world around them.
Ade is fluent in both English and Spanish.

In my private life I am a designer and someone who loves my culture.I am also a person who loves children and loves to get children to show of there talents as much as they can as i am a holder of many talents because you never know where your talents can take you. It is an honour to be apart of this organization and somethings that I could never take for granted.
My name is Nenlapmwa Comfort Dyitkuka, and I work for YNOT as the outreach coordinator.
With my counselling experience, I hope to enrich the lives of many people in whatever capacity I can through the platform of my job.
Every youth, in my opinion, needs a mentor and a supportive community in order to reach their full potential.
