NGUOCamplify is a series of leadership bootcamps and youthcamps to connect Vietnamese and Southeast Asian young aspiring leaders, inspire and provide knowledge of applicable soft skills and Southeast Asian missions. NGUOCamplìy aims to bridge the education gap among students, especially the lack of self-development opportunities and knowledge about regional/global issues, by empowering youngsters through experiential learning, co-creating and interactive activities. This high-intensity training model takes place within 1-2 days, providing knowledge and skills related to leadership and multi-ethnic culture. Targeting youngsters aged from 16-25 years old, it is our goal to train local staff, empower youth leaders, and motivate youngsters during our 5 events each year.
In Asian education, lessons and activities at schools are mostly teacher-centered, test-oriented and theory-based, which allows students little space to speak out and develop soft skills. A study by the Viet Nam Education Institute found 83 per cent of new graduates lack soft skills. Out of every 2,000 job applicants, only 40 have both the technical and soft skills required.
Meanwhile, current soft skills training programs in Vietnam are mainly held by private organizations, merely available in urban cities and consequently, the education disparity among students in Vietnam is further widened.
Vietnamese youth generally feel well-supported by their local communities, yet also feel disconnected from larger, national issues. In one research by the British Council, only one-third of urban respondents feel involved in planning and decision making in their community (27 per cent), while only slightly more feel that their opinions are valued in the community (35 per cent). The situation is proved to be even worse in underprivileged areas, such as mountainous and rural regions.
Urged by this situation, NGUOCamp is dedicated to creating an open space that facilitates soft skills acquisition, co-creation and youth empowerment among youngsters.
Basically, each camp is designed with connecting, introspection, and group activities for campers to grasp new knowledge on their own and in exchange groups. At pre-event, the participants are sent and required to adhere to a Culture set (as specified in the Other documents section) that includes smiling, interactive and proactive culture. Compared to passive, one-directional learning, NGUOCamp focuses on interactive learning, requiring every camper to respond to the content, voice up their opinions, listen to each other and get inspired. Besides leadership skills, our campers also learn about the culture and problems in other provinces and countries in order to broaden their perspectives and inspire them with new initiatives by youngsters across the world.

WORKSHOP “HEAL YOURSELF TO HEAL THE WORLD”
“In every walk with Nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”
- John Muir -
The popular presence of handicraft products is a testament to the strong development of craft village traditions in Vietnam. But, besides these bigger profits, we are witnessing a great change in the environment and bad changes to the quality of life.
Understanding and understanding their own role, NGUOC KEY INITIATIVES are determined to make these "truths" like an alarm bell, alerting everyone to the need to be responsible as well as respect the nature around us.
