Vietnam is on its path of globalization. Facing social changes and the challenges that follow, Vietnamese youth should be prepared with essential skills and knowledge in order to find their right life paths and contribute to the country’s sustainable development. In that context, Youth’s View, Voice and Vision in Society (YVS) was founded on May 20, 2012 as a youth-led organization by a group of Vietnamese students with a passion for youth development.


YVS will become a strong and extensive network of capable youth across Vietnam who, with the support of experienced experts and relevant organizations, take concrete actions in order to create positive local and global impacts.

Joining in YVS and organizing IChallenged 2012, I expect to help young people, first to improve their logic thinking and rhetoric skills, then to widen their knowledge and perspective about prominent social issues. I hope that IChallenged 2012 will provide young people with opportunity not only to express themselves but also to connect with others.

Joining YVS and IChallenged, I want to meet new people and acquire different critical thinking, debate and public speaking methods. I hope that YVS's events, especially IChallenged 2012, will encourage the young talents to share creative and distinctive ideas, to express opinions on current social issues, and to contribute to the development of individuals as well as the entire society.

The purpose when I and my friends founded YVS and organized IChallenged is to create an organized environment for Vietnamese youth to share critical thinking, debate, and public speaking skills, which are the foundation for the youth's self improvement, participation in current social issues, and the leading role in the country's development.​
