In the context of COVID-19, the launching ceremony of Hyundai Jump School Education Volunteer was held through the combination of offline and online forms.

Hyundai Jump School (H-Jump School) was initiated by Hyundai in 2013 in Korea to nurture future talents and solve education inequality. Annually, the programme selects talented students with a passion towards social activities and trains them to be young leaders of the future. Over the past eight years, about 5,400 university students participated in the programme in Korea, including 1,100 university student volunteers and 4,300 students having received tutoring.

In Vietnam, the programme has attracted more than 4,000 registrations, and from which 150 Vietnamese university student volunteers were selected to participate in the programme within three years, divided into three groups. Each volunteer group will provide four hours of customised tutoring and psycho-emotional support for underprivileged teenagers every week, for approximately 10 months.

University student volunteers taking part in H-Jump School Vietnam will have a chance to receive scholarships valued at up to VND20 million ($870) and will be mentored from career counselors of the programme, which will help them grow into professionals. The programme also gives the most active talents chances to travel travel to South Korea.

Son Ji Ho, head of the representative office of Hyundai Motor Group in Hanoi, said that through practical and meaningful activities, Hyundai Jump School will help students exchange ideas, develop themselves, and grow into young leaders. “Vietnam had young, dynamic and potential talents, which turned the country into the first destination when Hyundai implemented the plan to extend the programme outside Korea. We do hope that Hyundai Jump School will contribute to solving education inequality and nurturing young talent in Vietnam,” said Ji Ho.

In the context of COVID-19, the event was held in the form of a combination of offline and online: almost all guests and volunteer students participate in the programme via the online app. The programme was officially launched in Hanoi with the participation of representatives of accompanying partners such as JUMP, Volunteers for Peace Vietnam (VPV), and Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU); and representatives of seven community centres and schools in Hanoi.
