WE ARE HIRING

BYLC is a pioneer in its field, working at the forefront of youth leadership education in Bangladesh since 2009. We have brought together a team of professionals who strive for excellence, accountability, and integrity in all aspects of their work.

WHO WE ARE

Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC) has been standing by the young men and women of Bangladesh, equipping them with leadership, professional, and entrepreneurial skills that will enable them to have high impact in public, private, and civil sectors. In a world fragmented by intolerance, uncertainty, and injustice, BYLC exists to build leadership skills in youth from diverse backgrounds by instilling values of empathy, tolerance, and inclusiveness in them.

At BYLC, we believe that formal authority is not a requirement for exercising leadership.
Leadership can be exercised by anyone, regardless of age, gender, or socio-economic status. What is required for young people to exercise leadership is heart and ability. BYLC provides a platform for young people to develop skills required to practice leadership and participate in the country’s development process. A cornerstone of BYLC’s approach involves uniting youth from diverse socio-economic and educational backgrounds because effective leadership requires the capacity to embrace diversity and pluralism. And through this process of empowering young people to act on behalf of issues they care about deeply, we aim to strengthen prosperity, justice, and inclusiveness in society.
