Each year, BYLC offers various programs designed to hone the leadership skills of school, college, and university students. Using our unique teaching methodology, developed at Harvard and adapted to the Bangladeshi context, BYLC aims to instill values of service, inclusiveness, tolerance, and justice in Bangladesh’s youth. We encourage participants to exercise leadership on behalf of the issues they care about and bring about positive change in society, by providing a space where their development can unfold, and potential can be unleashed.
