THE STORY:

Founded in 2004 by undergraduate students from Stanford University, Southeast Asian Leadership Network (SEALNet) aims to foster the spirits of service leadership in future leaders of the Southeast Asian community, and has organized its activities in ASEAN nations the last 11 years.


As for our project which will take place in August, the overarching theme of this project is “Individuality.” During these two weeks, we will be working with two main groups: the high school students of Vietnam and Cambodia, and the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) Street Youth of Vietnam in order to answer this question, together.


For the LGBT Street Youth, a socially oppressed group who are forced to live on the street because of how they identify themselves, we aim to accomplish our shared mission of creating a more sympathetic society that will allow them to embrace their identity. Specifically for the LGBT participants that we’ll be interacting with, we will provide them with leadership skills, to help them develop long-term vision and opportunities to step up and develop a strong sense of conviction in themselves, in order for them to lead better lives. Upon embarking on this journey, we seek to listen to their stories, to widen our perspectives, and to deepen our understanding of our surroundings, as well as ourselves.


For the high school students of Cambodia and Vietnam, we strive to foster a safe environment where they can explore and discover themselves. Through multiple approaches, ranging from leadership workshops, service to the LGBT community, to one-on-one mentorship, we challenge the students to step up, to redefine themselves, and embrace their individuality. At the end of the two weeks, we hope the students will leave with a fresh sense of confidence in themselves to voice their opinions, take action for their beliefs and the understanding that they will have a vibrant community of SEALNutters behind them every step along the way.

Overall Objectives: 

LGBT Street Youth

  • To have a platform in exercising their agency and creativity. 
  • To boost their self-esteem 
  • To cultivate faith in their own society. 
  • To realize the power of their stories and increase confidence in themselves to move the community forward in their unique ways.

Cambodian and Vietnamese mentees:

  • To engage them in continuing to work towards the goal of creating a more empathetic society.
  • To discover who they are as leaders, with clear visions and goals of their own.  
  • To foster a genuine bond between the two nations.
  • To gain a strong support system for their future endavors.
