To date, youth union members across the province have implemented many concrete and practical actions to respond to the movement.
According to Nguy Van Tuyen, Secretary of the provincial chapter of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, to make the volunteer programme effective, grassroots-level youth unions should promote and maintain the effectiveness of on-the-spot voluntary activities, and participate in the settlement of arising tasks in the community.

The youth unions of Bac Giang city and districts need to build contents and set targets for each week and each month of the campaign in order to maximize social resources and create trust among benefactors and enterprises.
