Hanoi (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) will celebrate its 85th founding anniversary in Hanoi on March 25.

The celebration forms part of the activities in response to the 2016 Youth Month, which was launched in the northern province of Vinh Phuc on February 27.

Activities held during the first week of March will focus on occupations. Youths will be given advice on how to choose suitable jobs and offered chances to participate in visits to vocational training schools, trade villages and factories.

The second week’s theme will be “Green Environment”. A tree-planting festival will be held, and activities to raise youths’ awareness of environmental protection and climate change will be organised.

Meanwhile, during the third week of March, young people will take part in social welfare activities, including building houses for the poor, providing free health check-ups and medicine for poor people and policy beneficiaries, and presenting gifts to them.

The annual Youth Month aims to educate young people on the position and role the Youth Union plays in socio-economic development, nation-building and defence.-VNA
