The Young Leaders Conference (YLC) was initiated in 2002, with the identification of an opportunity; the large reserves of energy of Pakistan’s fastest growing youth population. Driven by a desire to harness this latent energy, to channelize it in a manner that would be conducive for individual and society, and to direct it towards more fruitful pursuits, our founding trinity stumbled upon the idea of a summit to educate and engage the youth that gave birth to the idea of YLC.
Today, the YLC is the most-awaited residential youth event of Pakistan, attended by youngsters from every corner of Pakistan and from around the world.
The Young Leaders Conference has become SoL’s flagship conference and produced young leaders and social action projects in the thousands. Organized on an annual basis, this six-day residential program aims to make the participants socially responsible and self-aware young adults willing to take on responsibility for their communities.
Opportunities are few and rare, but enough to alter the course of our lives, seldom do they knock on our doors, but when they do, how many of us identify them and have the courage to take them on?
Most often than not what happens is that, we miss out on a breakthrough in our lives just because, in this chaotic chatter of the world, with society, friends and family telling us who we were supposed to be, we find our own voices, ambitions & dreams dying a merciless death.
Although, we are all free and yet why do we feel caged?
Perhaps it’s not the variables outside but our own mindset that is holding us back.
This year’s theme ‘Breakthrough’ is symbolized through the mythological bird “The Phoenix”, which draws its power from the sun, when nearing the end of its life, it sets itself to flames and from its ashes a new bird comes to life. The phoenix symbolizes that suffering is inevitable since to rise, a phoenix must burn, it depicts resilience, strength, rebirth, hope, a fresh start, purity and freedom.
Therefore breakthrough your confines, be whoever you aspire to be, take this chance to reinvent yourself and start anew, because #ItsPossible
