NDO - Today, March 26, 2019, is a significant milestone, marking 88 years of the establishment, growth and dedication of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU). In the lively atmosphere of the Youth Month, millions of Youth Union members, officials and branches nationwide have been making efforts to gain specific and practical achievements in all aspects.

During the past 88 years, under the leadership of the Party and the guidance of Uncle Ho, the HCMCYU has gradually grown up, becoming a reliable reserve force of the Party. With the care and education of the HCMCYU, generations of Vietnamese youth have constantly promoted the patriotic tradition and asserted their revolutionary spirit and loyalty to the Party and the nation.

They have also volunteered to take on hard and new work and successfully completed all assigned tasks. The youth always uphold the spirit of fondness for learning, diligence, creativity and solidarity in a bid to master modern science and technology and be confident in the process of international integration.

A number of youth movements have been launched nationwide over the past years to implement action programmes outlined in the Resolution of the 11th National Congress of the HCMCYU. Such movements aim to educate the younger generations of revolutionary ideals, ethics and cultural lifestyles, namely "Voluntary Youth", "Creative Youth", "Youth pioneers to protect the Fatherland”, "Accompanying youth in learning", "Accompanying young in starting business and career", "Accompany young people to develop skills in life, and to improve physical and spiritual life", among others.

These activities affirm the role of the HCMCYU in supporting the youth, protecting legitimate rights and interests of young people while promoting the role of the youth in practical activities.
However, there are still some young people who have unsteady political stance, being selfish and indifferent to challenges and difficulties of the country. Many young people lack the sense of observance and legal knowledge, so they are easily being incited to participate in law-violating actions. Crime and social evils among young people and teenagers remain complicated and are tending to increase.

In addition, many young people of ethnic minorities groups and the youth in rural and mountainous areas have low levels of education and skills and do not meet the requirements of society. Meanwhile, the HCMCYU is still embarrassed and has yet topropose solutions to solve the abovementioned inadequacies. The HCMCYU also has limitations in approaching and guiding young people in many areas of life. There are Youth Union branches who fail to encourage and attract the youth to participate in and contribute to the Youth Union.

Amid difficulties and challenges, the HCMCYU should improve the effectiveness of its movements and action programmes in a more practical manner. It is necessary to renew the operations of the Youth Union associated with different objects of the youth to become a reliable companion of young people, thus, stimulating strength, intelligence and beautiful lifestyle among the youth.

The HCMCYU should pay more attention to creating an environment for young people to play, practice their skills, start a business, and contribute to society. At the same time, more educational activities should be built to give young people a firm belief in the path chosen by the Party and Uncle Ho. The innovation in the HCMCYU and youth movements will become a premise for Youth Union officials at all levels to overcome difficulties and pioneer to take on new tasks for socio-economic development and national independence and sovereignty. Practical action programmes of the HCMCYU are the best basis to take care of and protect the legitimate rights and interests of Youth Union members, especially disadvantaged youth.

Party committees and authorities should believe in and create more favourable conditions for Youth Union organisations and the youth to try and promote their capacity, qualifications and creativity to devote to the country. Relevant ministries and sectors need to closely coordinate with the HCMCYU in order to create conditions, environment, and open mechanisms for the youth to be confident in starting their businesses and asserting themselves.
