Community tourism professional training for ethnic minority youth.

There are two ethnic minority villages in Tan Son commune, Pleiku city, Gia Lai province, where people's lives mainly rely on agricultural production. The Tan Son Commune People's Committee annually provides free breeds and organizes training classes to transfer science and technology in production to villagers. The commune authorities also coordinate with relevant organizations to organize study tours for ethnic minorities, to help them exchange production and life experiences, and propagate and mobilize people to restructure valuable crops and livestock of high economic value.

The People's Committee of Tan Son commune recently coordinated with the Gia Lai College to successfully organize a training class on community tourism for ethnic minority youth in the commune.

After the 2-month course with the participation of a team of qualified and experienced teachers from Gia Lai College, 33 ethnic minority students were equipped with basic knowledge and skills about community tourism. The course combined theoretical introduction with practice of guiding skills, accommodation services, cuisine, cultural activities...

Tan Son is a commune on the outskirts of Pleiku city with many beautiful and peaceful natural landscapes. In recent years, Tan Son has become a familiar destination on weekends, holidays, and Tet holiday for local residents, visitors from neighboring districts, and tourists.

The community tourism training course is expected to create jobs and increase income for ethnic minority youth in Tan Son commune, creating a premise for young people to start a business, promoting local strengths and cultural identities for economic development.
