History
The Vietnamese Youth Foundation was founded in January 1994 by a group of committed Vietnamese Students. These students set out to create a project that would be community beneficial, empower and give hope to young Vietnamese. Initially, it was designed as an educational tool and a meeting center to encourage these students to express their passion, to be actively involved in and to fully exercise their valuable talent to help their community; the result was far more inspirational than expected. Vinh Nguyen, President of Vietnamese Youth Foundation, spent one and a half years consulting with local businesses and councilmen, about what was missing in the current condition of the Vietnamese generation. These early conversations, which included discussions with mayors, councilmen, and religious leaders, discovered while Vietnamese community has progressed, but yet an even greater number of Vietnamese youths are beginning to forget the tradition, beliefs, and culture of Vietnam. Today, Vietnamese Youth Foundation has grown from an idea to a truly global organization with a presence of over 24 chapters. Together, Vietnamese Youth Foundation and its partners have reached thousands of youths from around the world.
