I had the pleasure of being on both sides of the APL classroom. As a faculty, I can take my students through the same transformation I experienced when I participated in the first batch of APL. The state of the art curriculum on leadership, communication and networking skills that we deliver in the 3 day training continues to transform young people from all sectors and regions of Bangladesh.
