New York, USA


Dylan joined the VACorps program in January 2023 as part of his Gap Year and participated in a human rights law internship.

“Cape Town and the VACorps have provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and experience for me. I came here as part of my process of deciding where my next step in life is, and I can now say with resounding enthusiasm that I have gained priceless insight into the world and life itself through this experience. While my internship wasn’t the most productive, the life lessons I’ve learned, continue to become exponentially more valuable as I continue to grow and shape my view of the world. Overall it was a great experience and I have made friends that I will never forget, among both interns and VACorps staff members. (I’m talking about you Kus can’t wait to come back!”
