Hello Changemakers! Global Encounters and the Aga Khan Youth and Sports Boards have partnered to offer a virtual camp for youth of the global Jamat! Registration for the 2022 CONNECT cycle will open in March!



CONNECT, a journey of exploration, learning and creativity is designed to strengthen connections amongst global youth.

The camp will offer opportunities for youth to make friends from around the world, engage in cultural exchange, learn new skills, explore the AKDN, collaborate on creative projects, dialogue about current issues, and build for the future.

CONNECT participants engage in conversations and collaborate together around a theme. In past camps, themes have included: 

  • Entrepreneurship and Technology
  • Health and Wellness
  • Arts and Culture
  • Climate Change and Environmental Action


Youth between the ages of 14 to 17 years are invited to join us for this exciting global camp!


The next cycle of CONNECT will be held from 25 July - 31 July 2022. 

Camps will be seven days long and will take place for 5.5 hours per day.

Registration will open in March 2022!
