Youth are the most important and dynamic segment of the population in any country. It is believed that developing countries with large youth population could see tremendous growth, provided they invest in young people’s education, and their development. We can undoubtedly say that today’s young are tomorrow’s innovators, creators, builders and leaders.
In today's scenario, the system puts much emphasis on academic performance that it prevents students to nurture their leadership skills & creativity and gaining necessary awareness about social issues in their country. Consequently, these youths graduate from college to become passive employees rather than agents of change – initiators, leaders or creators – those who are willing to take action for causes they care about.
ICT Academy Youth Leadership Summit hopes to address this problem by creating a space for students to gain more leadership skills and be exposed to social issues in their country, as well as potential approaches and necessary mindsets to initiate social change.
Thus through hands-on leadership experiences, inspirational speakers, and peer discussion, students are empowered to dream and plan for leadership impact in their institutions, career, community and beyond! The summit will be a transformational experience that will further develop each student's sense of mission and purpose.
