Deadline: December 6, 2014 | Views: 209
Open to: Bangladeshi youths.
Conceptualized at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, Building Bridges through Leadership Training (BBLT) is a two-and-a-half month long after-school leadership training program for high school and first and second year university students. The program brings together participants from Bangla, English, and Madrassa medium backgrounds in equal proportions through a four-step competitive selection process and trains them on leadership, communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and project management.
In-class leadership training will run for the first six weeks. In the following four weeks, participants, divided into small groups, will plan and implement their self-designed projects in under-privileged communities.
Full scholarship will be provided by Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center but upon selection, participants will be required to pay a registration fee of BDT 5000 which will cover logistics costs including two BBLT polo shirts, course materials, a field trip, and daily snacks.
