Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC) will host a four-day ‘Youth Leadership Summit’ on August 4-7 aiming to mobilise youth to take a step forward in building a country that provides equitable opportunities for all its citizens, not just the privileged few.

"In 2021, Bangladesh celebrates the golden jubilee of independence and our achievements in the last 50 years. This year we also stepped into a new journey when we qualified to graduate into a developing nation from the LDC status after 45 years,” said Imran Chowdhury, senior manager operations and research, monitoring and evaluation (RME), BYLC.

BYLC is accepting applications for the summit until June 12. Interested applicants can visit
