In early November, the first year of the iLead leadership values education programme for youths from SOS Children's Villages, a cooperation initiative between the Korean-owned life insurer Shinhan Life Insurance Vietnam, BNJ Vietnam Training and Consulting Services Co., Ltd., and SOS Children's Village Vietnam, ended after nearly five months of study.
Within the framework of the iLead scheme, Shinhan Life Vietnam organised graduation ceremonies for the young people at SOS Hanoi, SOS Go Vap (Ho Chi Minh City), and SOS Danang.
The event was jointly organised by Shinhan Life Vietnam and BNJ Vietnam to facilitate comprehensive development and help children build leadership skills and confidence.

Designed by Dr. John C. Maxwell, the drive is tailored to those aged from 15 to 25 years old from SOS Children's Villages across Vietnam.
It is part of the YouthCan! Programme by SOS Children’s Villages International – Partnership for youth employability.
The iLead programme provides students with a forum to acquire leadership knowledge, skills, and values that enable them to connect with their peer group, thereby developing better relationships, finding their voice, and taking action to align themselves with positive values.

Throughout their participation in the offering, the students took part in various activities, including sessions on leadership skills, communication, teamwork, self-discovery, and bonding.

Shinhan Life Vietnam and BNJ Vietnam also awarded the children certificates of merit as special recognition and encouragement, praising their efforts and self-improvement on their journey to adulthood.
“Shinhan Life prioritises activities to enhance social responsibility through its operations in Vietnam,” said Bae Seung Jun, general director of Shinhan Life Vietnam.
“We realise that investing in children's development and education is investing in a sustainable future. Our vision for youth sponsorship programmes is not just to provide opportunities and funding, but also to promote self-confidence, leadership, and social responsibility,” he added.
As a long-term community project that is running from 2023 to 2025, the iLead education programme has successfully reached the targets set for this first year.
