As Viet Nam’s economy has modernized, demand has increased for skilled labour. This has resulted in diminished prospects for youth in finding formal employment. REACH is a local non-governmental organization that trains young people, particularly those from low-income households, in service industry and ICT skills, thereby increasing their chances of securing employment. Training courses include food and beverage service, beauty spa and makeup, sales and marketing, web and graphic design, hairdressing and nail art, and housekeeping. In addition to practical and technical training, the courses include modules on good work habits and attitudes; ‘soft skills’ training; and life skill components, such as preparing a curriculum vitae, problem-solving, and time and money management. To ensure a low dropout rate, REACH actively supports and counsels the trainees throughout. In partnership with over 1,000 companies, REACH identifies the skills that are in demand, develops matching curricula, and assists graduates to find employment. On average, 80 per cent of graduates find employment within six months.
