Leadership through Volunteerism
UNYSAB itself is a huge network spanning over seven divisions of the country and is partnered with many prominent groups. We build effective networks and connect people of all groups in Bangladesh.
PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
After the adoption of Sustainable Development Goals by United Nations as Agenda 2030, UNYSAB has been promoting sustainable development through its organizational activities.
UNYSAB believes in empowering the youth populace of the country, since youth are the future leaders of the country and their participation in the development can lead us to a better future.
We develop communication skills through Model UN conferences, exchange programmes and leadership workshops throughout the year.
FACILITATING NEW IDEAS
We encourage and support new ideas and innovation in the organization and try to utilize the ideas to participate in the development of the country.
UNYSAB vows to make the youth aware of social problems like violence against women, sexual and reproductive health rights, good governance etc.
During the past 20 years of journey, UNYSAB has been fortunate enough to have attracted some of the country’s brightest youths. They have proven their ability both within UNYSAB and throughout all areas of their lives. Our alumni are spread across every sector, from corporate to development and from public service to the U.N. – our alumni members have proven their worth everywhere.

I feel blessed to be a part of the strongest alumni network in Bangladesh. UNYSAB was my first exposure to the bigger world outside the university classrooms. All those weekends spent on the research, planning, and execution processes of numerous projects that we ran have acted as an incubator in shaping my perspective while faced with real-life challenges in career. Also, UNYSAB is that one family where the members are always with each other through thick and thin.

Joining UNYSAB was one of the turning points of my life. I realized the scope of volunteerism while participating in different activities. I learned constructive argument and negotiation from UNYSAB. That helped me in my final interview and 5 years of career in Unilever Bangladesh Limited. Even after coming to Australia through scholarship, I recall my learnings of teamwork and networking in UNYSAB and practice them to have a beautiful bonding with the international students. UNYSAB is a school of Leaders and I feel proud to be a part of this family.

I was always enthusiastic to be involved with different activities. Then I got to know about UNYSAB when I was studying at IBA- JU. I found the platform the ultimate one for learning leadership; teamwork and organizing skill; people skill; task and project management; communication; etc. through volunteerism, research and public speaking. It helped me a lot to form the person I’m today. Working for UNYSAB not only made me confident and more skilled; but also uplift my feelings for doing something for the society and humanity.

The value of joining UNYSAB was threefold. Firstly, it develops your skills and abilities like leadership, organizing, negotiation, communication and also intrigues your professionalism. Second, it makes you understand the worth of volunteering and doing something of value for the society and humanity. Last but not the least in my scenario, it created a lot of memories for me to look back throughout the lifetime; and also bonded some friendships which only went on to be stronger. All of these combined, joining UNYSAB was something I look back at with pride, contentment and gratification; being in the Financial Industry for these years as a Financial Risk Analyst and creating a positive impact in the industry as well as society.
I joined UNYSAB when I was a university student and UNYSAB became a part of my everyday life. I got the opportunity to gain experience by arranging, attending and designing programs and events and I developed an interest to work in the development sector while volunteering here. Above everything, I got to meet some beautiful soul here and this organization developed me.
