Leadership - Dustin Jolivette - Philanthropy Co-Director
First and foremost, I am a geek. I love all things that involve an imagination-fueled mind, super powers, and an amazing story. As a young lad I grew up on a farm where my closest neighbor was almost a mile down the road, so people watching as well as being social are two activities that I highly enjoy now that I live in a city. I also highly enjoy training in Muay Thai and participating in group fitness classes.
Community Involvement and Interests:
I have volunteered with the American Diabetes Association's Step Out and Art of Giving Gala. In addition to this, I regularly involve myself in programs and organizations that work with youth, teens, and students. Oftentimes I find that those younger generations have the imagination and story-telling skills that I find I am drawn to, so working with them is by far and large one of my favorite ways to involve myself with the community.
What does Columbus offer young professionals?
More than you could possibly ever use. Top notch universities that produce academic studies recognized worldwide, some of the best kick-start organizations for small businesses in the country, a plethora of companies working on cutting edge technology, and even one of the top 10 rated 24-hour food joints in the U.S.A. (Hound Dogs; in case you as a young professional need a bite at 4:00 AM).
What do you hope members get out of their involvement in the CYP CLUB?
One of two major things (or both). 1) Enjoyment and 2) Connections (be those business connections or new friends).
What's your favorite CYP CLUB activity and why?
Sand Volleyball is by far my favorite. I have made some really good friends playing sand volleyball. What is really better than that?
