Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC), with support from the Ministry of Education, organised a workshop recently on leadership development for teachers at their headquarters in Dhaka.

The workshop was attended by the principals and administrators of 30 leading English, Bangla, and Madrassa medium schools. The chief guest of the programme was Dr Gowher Rizvi, founding international advisory board member of BYLC, and the Prime Minister’s international affairs advisor. The discussion focused on how teachers can play a role to nurture values of courage, compassion and competence that would inspire students to work together for the development of Bangladesh, irrespective of their educational or socio-economic backgrounds.

In his remarks, Dr Rizvi said: “Over the past seven years, BYLC has been doing a remarkable job of uniting youth from diverse backgrounds and equipping them with leadership skills. The future of Bangladesh depends on inclusive leadership. I commend BYLC on its initiative to bring together teachers from diverse backgrounds to start a vibrant dialogue on the work that needs to be done to provide students with opportunities to realise their leadership potential.”

“If we can create transformative learning experiences for our students in the classroom, we can transform Bangladesh,” said Ejaj Ahmad, founder of BYLC, in his speech. He added, “To maximise its impact in society, BYLC intends to work with secondary schools to introduce leadership programmes for students which would strengthen their problem solving, communication, and teamwork skills.”
