The Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board for Pakistan (AKYSB) is excited to welcome participants and facilitators for an unforgettable summer with the Broadening Horizons Youth Camp (BHYC).

An initiative of the Youth Coordination Forum (YCF), BHYC inspires resilience in the youth and nurtures their social, physical, cognitive and emotional growth. It is hoped that by the end of this camp, the youth are better able to address contemporary challenges with ethical approaches, take pride in their identity and develop an increased sense of belonging towards the Jamat and its institutions, enhance their leadership skills and are inspired to become ambassadors of the Jamat. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the camp will engage the youth through educational sessions, group-based activities, AKDN site visits and adventure sports.


Jamati boys and girls aged 15 to 17 across Pakistan are invited to apply for BHYC 2023. We want to get to know you and learn about your interests, passions and motivation for applying to BHYC. We encourage you to be open and honest in your application, which will be peer-reviewed. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to participate in BHYC.


Facilitators will directly mentor, guide and support participants to ensure their growth and development through transformational experiences. Facilitators are required to be flexible, able to adapt quickly to dynamic situations, open to learning and being part of a team, for they serve a key role in building relationships and fostering a sense of community at BHYC. Candidates aged 20 to 25 will be prioritized as facilitators and will be required to participate in virtual and in-person training prior to the camp.


The residential camp will be held in various regions of Gilgit Baltistan from 24th June to 1st July 2023. The last date for participant and facilitator applications is 16th April 2023.
