 HÀ NỘI — An online winter camp has been organised to help students from 15 to 18 years old develop leadership skills and self-awareness.

“The Sweets Game” took place during November 24-28. It was part of the Global Citizens Project implemented by the youth organisation AIESEC in Vietnam.

More than 120 students took part in the camp from all over the country.

Each camp day was filled with discussions, lessons and games that were designed to facilitate campers’ self-development.

Young people discovered their strengths and weaknesses, learned to take care of their mental health, identified their passions, and practised teamwork and knowledge sharing.

They were also given the last day of the camp to reflect on what they had learned.

The programme put an emphasis on developing leaders that believe in themselves and others, who can lead a team to achieve a common goal, according to the organiser.

It also aimed to create a playground and inspired high school students to become global citizens, by teaching them new skills to adapt to the "new normal” situation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Project leader Trần An Khanh said: “Organising and managing this winter camp is a very meaningful experience for me. I had the opportunity to work in a professional environment, to get to know and connect with members of the organising committee and campers.

“Winter Camp 2021 for me is really a meaningful experience, I can not only develop myself but also contribute to the development of today's young community." VNS
