Huynh Trưởng are Heroes!! Our roles and responsibilities as Huynh Trưởng to the youth continue. Let us come together and journey with our youth members weekly during this challenging period. Coming together doesn't solely rely on physical presence. We can come together virtually, in communion of prayers and spiritual accompaniment.

Shout outs to the Chapters that are already engaging with the youth weekly. Those who haven't, let's do it together! Please tag us on Facebook to help mobilize other Chapters to do the same. We can do this for our youth!!
