Since 2002, The Young Leaders Conference (YLC) brings together 300 diverse individuals from all over Pakistan. YLC, to date, has worked directly with over 5,725 Young Leaders of Pakistan. Every year, YLC takes on a 6-day, 5-night residential leadership expedition. Honored by country’s best minds, artists, entrepreneurs, practitioners and activists, YLC aims for young leaders to:

    • Initiate a journey of self-awareness and confidence building.
    • Expand thinking in corporate, development, politics and culture.
    • Connect with peer young leaders from across urban and rural Pakistan.
    • Discover themselves more through experiential exercises and simulations.
    • Shape character and develop personality through capacity building.
    • Commit to becoming  contributing  citizens through  social  action projects  that   directly  benefit their communities.

Would you ever stand in front of a mirror and reflect on questions like who am I or where do I belong or perhaps what is the belief system I carry with myself? Skipping the most important questions and jumping directly towards questions that only answer our name, education, physical appearance and the usual job titles we carry with ourselves. In the technologically pacing world, luxuries being portrayed and through the concept of flexing what you have; we are losing out on realizing our actual identities, perhaps as humans.

The biggest crisis of this century is not what we see outside; societal-ills, taboos, stereotypes. The biggest crisis is what we don’t see inside; the power within, the potential we possess, the infinite possibilities and opportunities we can create out of our unique intellect; the ASHRAF! We know everything but ourselves and to know one must dive deep within and explore the inner soul. Only then, we together will be able to create a desired world outside. Without focusing on the inside, there’s no outside.

With the objectives of confidence building and exposure, YLC in the year 2022 aims to put participants into a 6-day residential experience to enable them to explore themselves better, meet their true potential and practice the application of that character in their communities and organizations and make this world a better place with their thoughts and actions.

Pehchaan (– Identity) is about becoming more confident and self-aware. Young Leaders Conference in its 21st Edition is focusing on creating experiences that help participants disconnect with the race they are in to prove themselves better than others, stop them from looking for shortcuts to go big and possibly prevent themselves from getting into the existential crisis they are setting themselves up for. It’s high time that we root back to our values, figure out the fundamentals of life and then apply the same in our personal and professional lives.
