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.

Next is an aspiration, it is the way forward. It is a vision and an anticipation for what is to come in life. Humans have always evolved one way or the other achieving greater milestones, excelling in technology, coming out of the Stone Age and moving towards a globalised world wherein we are so connected that infinity is truly felt. In dreams, in aspirations and in excellence it is always the question that keep popping in our minds about What’s Next!

To envision next, one has to have a mind-sight more than the eyesight and be able to travel a long way in their mind first before they do in actual. For ourselves right now, there is so much of ambiguity, lack of clarity, macro-level problems and distress around that our next is blur. With our power beyond measurement, we must rise above, enhance our exposure, develop a growth mindset, be action-oriented and set our vision right, attach ourselves with a purpose and be determined to achieve that.

Now is the Call for action. It’s been decades that we have been complaining, looking for justifications, and excusing failures for lack of resources and a missing ecosystem. Communities build when people demonstrate character, when they understand the true combination of freedom with discipline when there is no discrepancy between what they say and what they do, and when they really are determined to become eternal with what they do in their life.

Now is your time to be that.

Now is your time to take a STEP.

Now is your time to demonstrate LEADERSHIP.

Now is your time to STOP complaining.

Now is your time to take ACTION.

Now is your time to learn and DEVELOP yourself.

Now is your time to have a mindset that enlightens the entire UNIVERSE.

Now is your time to look forward to FUTURE.

Now is your time to give a vision to people who lack PURPOSE.

Now is your time to bear the TORCH that others are afraid to bear.

YOU ARE NOW and nothing else. IT IS EITHER YOU or NEVER.


Let’s come together to redefine what action means, the essence of being a great human being, the power of learning something new, the importance of exposing yourself to the ever-evolving world, and your connection with your inner-self.
