YCI Country Information
YCI in Vietnam was launched in Hanoi in 2010. The Sheraton Hanoi Hotel welcomed nine young participants into the training programme that teaches them a wide range of work skills whilst exposing them to over 15 skill areas within the hotel operations. The participants came from three SOS Children’s Villages near Hanoi. SOS Children’s Villages provides participants with life skills training during the programme. The Hilton Hanoi Opera joined the programme in 2012, and the Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi in 2013.
REACH, a local non-profit organisation, coordinates the programme on the ground. Their role involves organising the recruitment of suitable candidates, arranging extra training sessions such as computer lessons and periodically monitoring the performance of participants. YCI Hanoi is currently in its third programme cycle and involves the three participating hotels mentioned above.
