Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC), in collaboration with IKEA Foundation, has set out to provide vocational and technical training to 10 thousand young people from low income families, who will be later absorbed in jobs.

BYLC will train 10 thousand youths, and 4,000 of them will be absorbed in jobs in the next four years.  

IKEA Foundation is an independent charitable foundation of Netherlands that funds dozens of programs for making life better for children living in extreme poverty.

Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC), in collaboration with the IKEA Foundation, and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN), launched this four-year project titled ‘Creating a Sustainable and Prosperous Future for Bangladeshi Youth’, through a press conference organized by BYLC at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in the capital on Sunday. 

Program in December

Project sources said interested people may start applying for the program from December of this year. 

Selected participants can take courses online. Physical and practical training will be given to them as well. 

Courses offered

The courses will be offered on problem solving, critical thinking, public speaking, entrepreneurship, career development, career planning, and many more.

Under the program, training will be provided to 10,000 undergraduate final year students. 

As part of the program, 30 youth-led enterprises will be provided with seed funds, so that they can create jobs for at least 200 young people in their first year of operation.

Founder and President of BYLC, Ejaj Ahmad, said that getting information is necessary but analyzing, and using the information is essential, and this program aims at it. 

Harry Verweij, Ambassador of the Netherlands to Bangladesh, said vocational, and technical training can benefit the youths of Bangladesh. 

Sonia Bashir Kabir, founder, chairman, and CEO of SBK Tech Ventures, said it is very important to train the youth of Bangladesh in both hard, and soft skills. 

His Highness Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands said “I commend BYLC for starting a project that offers the youths an opportunity to develop the right skills, and network to access employment, enabling them to earn a decent income, and afford a better life.”
