On November 31, 2021, the "Development Incubator" initiative successfully took place the last seminar in the series of events organized by For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF) and the ABG Leadership Institute (ABG). This is a program exclusively for young people including the participation of DynaGen students.

 The young generation possesses an open mind, creativity, a desire to contribute and cares about social issues. For them, sustainability is not only a movement but a way of life that needs to be shaped, pursued and spread. That is the message sent to young leaders in three sessions of "Development Incubator".

 The "Development Incubator" initiative is co-implemented by VSF and ABG. The program was conducted with 3 seminars for more than 60 young leaders and 4 experienced speakers in the field of development: Ms. NTH - Member of ABG Leadership Institute, Mr. VTX - Environment Program Manager at VSF, Mr. DTP - Founder of Center for Sustainable Development Studies (CSDS) and Ms. LL - Socio-Cultural Program Coordinator at the Goethe Institute Viet Nam.

 The series of seminars aims to share knowledge about development philosophy, development discourse and design thinking, which will help young people implement effectively and sustainably community initiatives. Besides, the seminars are also an opportunity for the speakers to inspire and encourage confidence in young leaders. Through seminars, the organizers also aim to build and connect youth networks to jointly implement initiatives for the community.

 Talking about the reason for organizing the program, Ms. NTH - who has more than 20 years of experience in founding and leading non-profit development organizations and initiatives in Vietnam shared: “There are seeds of growth in each of us, whether working in any field, whether in government, business or in social organizations. VTX (VSF) and I built the Initiative "Development Incubator" with the desire to share and promote the seeds of development in each person. We also expect that after the seminars, each young person will shape a growth mindset, build the right direction for their ideas and initiatives.” 

 Three seminars were held online and attracted the participation of more than 60 young leaders interested in the topic of community development, including DynaGen students. In addition to sharing knowledge about development philosophy, discourse, and design thinking, young people have the opportunity to interact with speakers who have had many domestic and international experiences.

In the first webinar with the theme "Finding a job you love", Mr. N.Q.T - Founder of Mentori Vietnam analyzed the following topics: What is understanding yourself? What is social understanding? What is the most important factor when choosing a company to work for? Thereby, he emphasized “Besides salary and promotion, the most important thing is you must understand your suitability to know what value you bring to the company and vice versa. Then, you find out what are the strengths and weaknesses and find the most suitable company which becomes the piece of your life. It may take a lot of work to understand yourself, but in return it will be a launching pad to help you change, become the best version of yourself and grow very quickly in the future.”

“How to have an effective Mentoring session” is the topic of the 2nd webinar of DynaGen Mentoring. In this webinar, Ms. T.T.L - Marketing Manager at Mentori Vietnam shared about the goals and contents of the program, the participation process, the things students need to pay attention to, the steps to have an effective Mentoring session.

Mr. L.Q.A emphasized "the most important thing for you is to find your motivation to develop yourself, orient a clear direction to improve."

“Pairing” is the most anticipated activity of the DynaGen Mentoring program. Mentees can send “pairing” requests to 5 Mentors and the maximum connection ratio is 3/5. After Mentor accepts the request, the two parties will connect via text message and schedule a meeting on the system. The time and form of mentoring is completely agreed and decided by Mentor and Mentee. Each Mentee will have a maximum of 3 meetings with 3 different Mentors.

  • “I was connected with Mr. P.H.S – Training and Human Resource Development Specialist of BAEMIN Vietnam. Mr. P.H.S was extremely enthusiastic, he answered all my questions about the human resources field. Moreover, he is very willing to answer even after finishing these 2 1:1 session. After the program, I found the motivation to pursue my passion in the human resources field, especially not hesitate to seek internship opportunities at big enterprises." – N.T.H shared.
