Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC) has hosted a virtual graduation ceremony for the 2020 batches of Building Bridges through Leadership Training (BBLT) and Building Bridges through Leadership Training Junior (BBLTJ) programs.

The ceremony was held on Saturday while the programs were supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

A total of 339 students from English and Bangla medium schools and madrasas graduated from the BBLT and BBLTJ programs in 2020, said a press release on Monday.

Participants selected for the programs went through rigorous sessions of virtual training on the theoretical and practical concepts of leadership, critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication.

In her speech as the chief guest at the ceremony, Paula Schindeler, chargé d'affaires, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Dhaka, applauded BYLC for establishing an innovative approach to leadership by inculcating values of tolerance and inclusion in youth.

"BBLT and BBLTJ programs don't just have an impact on the students' lives. There is also a spillover effect on communities and Bangladesh as a whole through the social development projects that students design and implement," she added.

BYLC President Ejaj Ahmad said: "Seeing the graduates of our leadership programs gives me hope that Bangladesh has a bright future. Through their practice of leadership, these young men and women will surely take our nation forward."

Aside from leadership training, students also worked in small groups to apply their lessons in online social service projects. 

They designed and implemented small but realistic, measurable, and results-driven projects to serve impoverished communities, the press statement added.
