What is TNTT?
The Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Society is a non-profit organization, under the leadership of the Catholic church. Its aim is to teach youths to be virtuous people and good Christians. It also offers apostolate services for the youth.
Structures of TNTT
Green-Âu Nhi (Seedling)
Blue-Thieu Nhi (Companion)
Yellow-Nghia Si (Consolidator)
Brown-Hiep Si (Eucharistic Knight)
Red-Huynh Truong (Coordinating-leader/Mentor)
Just like in the Army, TNTT has a salutation protocol. It is called Chào. What you do is hold up your right hand up to your side with your thumbed folded into your palm and the coordinating leader will do it back to you, meaning that they acknowledge your salute. There is also a rest and attention position. They are the same as the Army. Rest is Nghī. Attention is Nghiêm.
There are many different formations in TNTT. The main formation used is a military based lineup of four groups. There are 4 group leaders who stay at the front and line everyone up from shortest to tallest. The assistant leaders stay at the end of the line to help keep the formation in check while the leader is facing forward. Other formations include semi circle, circle and U.
There are different lessons the students learns they grow up within each category. The students learn how to wear a proper uniform, how to tie their ties, the formations and regulations, 10 commandments of TNTT, different TNTT songs and prayers and basic survival skills.

TNTT isn't all about lectures and lessons. As mentors, it is our job to make sure the students not only are aware of their lessons, but that they also are having fun. During our TNTT time, we usually incorporate one or more games into their lessons. There are also times during the summer when we will host camps, go on road trips or have various TNTT group activities.
Every year, we have a camp for just our TNTT group. We usually go to Smithville lake and pitch tents, spending the Friday afternoon to Sunday evening at camp. The students are able to participate in different lessons and activities, such as Hanh Trinh Duc Thien (HTDT-Scavenger Hunt), Lua Thien (Fire Ceremony), cooking, knot tying lessons and spiritual lessons.
We also go on road trips to other camps that are hosted by other TNTT groups. So far since I have been in TNTT, we have gone to Nebraska, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Kansas. We have been to many camps with other TNTT groups from the states listed above including Colorado, Minnesota, Canada, Florida, Texas, California and Oklahoma.
We even go on canoe trips, paintballing, bowling, swimming, fishing, hiking, etc. We also love to go out and eat.
