Almost two hundred youthful souls have come together in the bootcamp at Sheikh Hasina National Youth Development Institute. They experienced a day full of interactive sessions where they mingled and shared experience and learnt from each other. There were some meticulously designed sessions that allowed the participants to gain insights on different youth related topics such as skill and education, startups, career management, leadership and organization development, mental health, civic responsibility, etc. In-between very serious discussions, there were some informal chit-chats, photo shoot, and lot of fun. Over all it was a day to cherish for the participants.
