There's even more to Blue Dragon than the work we do with Vietnamese kids.
As we've grown over the years, we have made it our mission to also train up staff, professionals, students, and other organisations, so that our reach can go well beyond the thousands of kids who we meet ourselves.
At most times of the year, we have at least 2 or 3 university interns, particularly from the Social Work colleges and universities.
But this month, we have 3 interns who we are especially proud of... because they are tertiary students who have been in Blue Dragon's programs in the past!
The 3 young women are close to finishing their degrees, and their internship at Blue Dragon is a final step to graduation.
Minh Nghia is spending 6 weeks in our IT department, learning the ropes of running IT classes and managing a small department.
Phuong and Phuong (same spelling, different pronunications!) have joined our accounting team for 8-10 weeks, and are getting their heads around the use of a cash book, entering data into our system, and keeping track of cash in and out.
It's great to see them back at the centre, now young adults brimming with confidence and planning for their careers.
