BUILDING BRIDGES THROUGH LEADERSHIP TRAINING JUNIOR

ABOUT

Building Bridges through Leadership Training Junior (BBLTJ) is a five-week-long program designed for secondary school students in grades 6 to 10. The BBLTJ program uses a competitive selection process to enroll students from the three different educational tracks, namely English and Bengali medium, and Madrassa. The program, adapted to suit the learning needs of students aged between 12 and 16, focuses on sensitizing a younger audience to the values of leadership, teamwork, community service, and active citizenship.

The program specifically targets students enrolled in class 6 to 10 to instill positive values from a young age, so that lessons of leadership and building bridges remain influential throughout their lives.
