Lyallpur Youth Summit 2019
Why Lyallpur Youth Summit
⭕ As we all are well familiar with previously existing and famous name of Faisalabad that is still popular and well known as "Lyallpur", it is historically one of the first planned cities within British India. It is 3rd most populous city of Pakistan
⭕ Despite of the significance of Faisalabad and its youth (10 Million) they are not given with equal opportunities as compared to other cities of Pakistan. To participate in extracurricular activities, students and professionals residing in Faisalabad have to travel Lahore and Islamabad which are at 200km and 400km in travelling intervals from Faisalabad.
⭕ 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. While four million young people enter workforce every year in Pakistan, an estimated 60 percent of them are employed in low paid and unstable jobs. Youth is the energy that will determine the direction Pakistan will take.
⭕ Lyallpur Youth 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.
⭕Output of the Summit
By organizing this summit we assure the participants that we would continue to prioritize supporting young people, in particular young girls, in becoming leaders and to ensure that their roles in Pakistan’s society and economy are adequately valued and recognized.
⭕ Thus through hands-on leadership experiences, inspirational speakers, and peer discussion, students will empower 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 especially for the Youth of Faisalabad who have to travel other cities to attend productive events for their skill developments.
⭕This summit is going to provide great prospects to youth in which they are going to interact with Intelligentsia, Government Officials and Significant Stakeholders from various sectors.
