JAAGO Foundation has been the pioneer in providing the youths of Bangladesh a voice and a platform through its Youth Wing “Volunteer for Bangladesh” to contribute in nation building.

National Youth Assembly 2017 is part of JAAGO Foundations such endeavor to build Leadership Skills and Capacity among the volunteers of its nation-wide volunteer organization – Volunteer for Bangladesh (VBD). It will be a 4 day long residential training program from 16th to 19th January, 2017. It is aimed at providing a hub for innovation where youth leaders can meet and share their ideas and visions to build a better Bangladesh.

The National Youth Assembly 2017 will bring together about 112 youth delegates from 8 divisions of Bangladesh under one roof to strengthen their leadership and communication skills to help them, serve their community.
The assembly will feature various workshops, interactive sessions between the volunteers and distinguished speakers from around the country. The sessions will discuss various ideas on social development, dimensions of human development, social entrepreneurship, women empowerment and community participation.

The delegates will get to interact with volunteers form different districts and improve their networking skills. They will learn to work in teams and take united efforts for building a better nation together. The will be trained to generate new ideas and how to implement them effectively to build a better Bangladesh. This inclusive and engaging program will enlighten the delegates with issues like Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to community engagement. It will further strengthen personal development of the delegates thus inspire and motivate them to be Active Citizens in their respective areas.

This is a unique platform which will help youths to effectively be agents for positive social change in their communities and as well as globally. We believe that if the youth of Bangladesh are equipped with the right skills, values, knowledge and such platforms, then we can leave behind a Bangladesh that is better than the one that we inherited.
