During each period, each year, professionalism became more and more prominent in the organization of campaigns and volunteer activities of the youth of Ho Chi Minh City. However, the requirements do not stop only at professionalism but also take into account consistency, novelty, attractiveness and likability…
need to keep changing
Ms. Phan Thi Thanh Phuong affirmed that over the past 30 years, the volunteer movement of Ho Chi Minh City’s youth has grown markedly and dramatically. It is difficult to enumerate all the work, actions and content of the Ho Chi Minh City volunteer movement, from the very specific goals of the early days such as weeding, planting trees, eradicating illiteracy, etc.
However, the youth of Ho Chi Minh City will need to change a lot and do a lot of work in the coming times if they want to bring increased professionalism and stability to the volunteer movement.
To do this, it is essential that all programs and activities are designed with greater care. Tasks and tasks need to be made more practical, including a more specific survey of the area the campaign is targeting. Consider the volume, nature and portion of work to use resources appropriately and effectively.
Ms. Phuong talked a lot about three-step communication: before – during and after. In particular, he believes that before the campaign it is extremely important to call upon the forces and resources of society to join the campaign. In turn, the entity organizing and designing the movement must clearly show the themes, actions and projects it aims at.
Meanwhile, communication in the campaign has a different meaning, spreading the wind and breath of the movement. This should be a process of Swayamsevak soldiers “eating together, living together, working together” in the homes and localities through which the Swayamsevak movement passed.
And if you want social forces and resources to continue to support the movement in the following years, it must be necessary to summarize and report on the results after the campaign.
In the context that each target group (youth activists, students, armed forces) has its own characteristics and strengths, it is important to diversify organizational methods to suit each audience. Need.
However, this does not mean that the direction is fragmented and sporadic. At the time, even though there were many programs and campaigns for many audiences, they all had to follow common goals (tasks count, effort goals, peak days). That is, the tasks between missions, tasks must be interconnected, forces must be exchanged effectively…
“It is an important method, so in recent years, we have always had three general guiding ideas: the same system of tasks, the same system of goals and the same system of peak days,” Ms. Phuong said.
The better the force building after campaigns and programmes, the more sustainable and professional the volunteer movement. That should be the investment and development of youth union, student union, youth union and introduction to develop party especially for elite soldiers.
They believe that getting organized to join the party in volunteer activities will add to the significance of the ceremony…
“I think if these factors can be combined, careful preparation, effective promotion, regularly renewing the way of organizing implementation and investing in resources, especially the maturity of the force. Participating in volunteer activities In the process, it will definitely ensure a more professional and sustainable way for the city’s volunteer movement,” Phuong stressed.
Go deep, stick to context
Faced with the rapid development of science and technology, artificial intelligence and 4.0 technology, which is spreading in every breath of life, Ms. Phuong believes that HCMC’s volunteer activities cannot be out of content. this stuff. Is there any difference in the way they are selected and implemented?
Currently, the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union is striving to create and launch a series of themes that apply AI and AR (virtual reality technology) in the promotion and image promotion of the city’s volunteer movement. Recently, Thanh Don has launched an exhibition on the theme “30 Years – Youth Volunteering” created entirely by virtual reality technology in cyberspace.
Allowing users to create a virtual character to follow the exhibition in order to participate in the challenges achieved, along with a detailed description of the process of formation, development, symbolic meaning of summer volunteer campaigns. Positive feedback, a large number of people participated in the experience.
In addition, the use of the electronic portal (Go Volunteer Portal) is also a way to keep up to date with the development of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union. All information about volunteer activities created by the youth association of Thanh Dun, districts and Ho Chi Minh City will be clearly displayed on the portal.
In addition, the creation of an online volunteer map that summarizes all volunteer activities across the city is also implemented by the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union.
Phuong said, “Creating space and many volunteer activities for young people, especially Gen Z friends to consider the circumstances, choose to actively participate and interact directly, is also one of the new requirements of development.” Is. Born in the present context.”
In addition to the above issues, for the volunteer movement to be sustainable, it is imperative that the commanding committees of each campaign and activity delve deeper and follow the context of each locality closely. That is, the tasks and functions created by that formation must ensure practicality, efficiency, and bring meaning to the locality and its people.
The Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union’s guiding approach to the volunteer movement during the past has always been: “At least 3 to 5 years should be associated with one area”.
One or two years is not enough to understand and clearly define the local requirements. Since then, it has been necessary to link each campaign to each locality for several years. Work follows work, the following works both on and reinforce the previous year’s work.
Ms. Phuong shared, “Concreting roads for a locality can never be done in one year, but with a span of 3 years, 5 years, it will be successful. Same with other parts and works. “
