YLC Has Over 4000+ Alumni And Counting

The conference also focuses on inculcating inclusivity, empathy and acknowledgement for all human beings.


The School of Leadership has been organizing the Young Leaders Conference in different cities of Pakistan since the year 2002. The conference is geared towards maximizing leadership potential in young adults between the ages of 18 to 24.

The conference has also focused extensively on social action and initiative, capacity building, creating networking opportunities and imparting essential and time relevant social lessons.

This year, the conference looks to magnify its focus on valuable societal issues that may be brushed off, to be dealt with later, but which actually need engagement with, today. Gender parity, human rights, environmental consciousness, sustainability and renewable energy are only a few of these topic areas.

An intricate and valuable part of successfully engaging with these issues that run like a thread through stable and prosperous society, is pluralistic attendance. The conference currently attracts youth from over a 50 cities in Pakistan, spread across all provinces of the country. In order to maximize the impact of themes such as pluralism, conflict resolution through peaceful means, international relations, economic and environmental sustainability among others specific skill-shops are designed for the participants by inviting experts of the relevant fields. Apply now!

Pakistan’s Largest Residential Conference

The pressure on the current population of young adults is enormous, though direction and opportunity, both scarce. To fill this vacuum, SoL presented YLC as a means to connect desperately ambitious young people with beacons of prosperity. For 15 years now, we have been connecting those brimming with ambition, to top corporate figure heads, prominent donor agencies, employment lifelines and instilling in stakeholders, a rejuvenated confidence in the youth of a country that continuously but resiliently fights off falling prey to instability.

To Begin With

It was 2002. Shireen Naqvi, SoL’s founding director, was working from a small, cramped office space at the KZR office. She had by her side the able Saima Khan and the multi-talented Kamran Rizvi. While confined, she envisioned a platform that would provide much needed space to our youth. That was the start of the YLC journey!

Why does your contribution matter? Because you are born different. Period.
