School of Leadership (SoL) has announced 14th Young Leaders Conference (YLC) and will start from August 11 in Islamabad.
Building upon years of tradition, this year’s YLC revolves around the theme of ‘Regeneration’. It refers to a re-assessment of pre-existing ideas in today’s context. The idea will be further explored through detailed discussions and simulations that will incorporate issues from all spheres of a young person’s life.
The participants will be introduced to a new aspect of regeneration every day. The first day will be all about the struggle of shedding old beliefs. Participants will then be set on a path to discover their purpose.
After the formulation of a resolution, the participants will be exposed to cultural, political, economic and social scenarios in order to better comprehend their standing.
YLC’15 will be a fusion of innovation and inspiration that will urge the participants to look at future possibilities, and will activate a sense of social responsibility through post-conference social action projects.
The organisation is keen to train and facilitate youth of Pakistan gathering at the platform.
YLC is an annual conference that has been organised by SoL from 2002. More than 3000 young leaders from urban and rural areas of Pakistan are part of the extensive network. Hundreds of politicians, business tycoons, celebrities and youngsters have been part of the conference so far who shared experiences and gave opinions on different youth related issues.
At YLC youth between the ages of 18 to 24 are exposed to social, cultural, political and economic facets of leadership. Guided by mentors, experts, practitioners and trainers, youngsters develop their capacities in an environment conducive to learning.
Thus, visions are heightened, passions infused, lives rejuvenated, friendships gained and lessons learnt.
