Welcome to VIET

VIET, which stands for Vietnamese Initiative in Economic Training, is a community-based organization that was created in 2001 with a mission to develop educational and economic training programs and act as a resource center for minority residents in Louisiana.

VIET was created to help non-English speaking communities not only enter, but prosper in American society. VIET also serves as a bridge to close the gap as it relates to cultural and language barriers.

VIET was co-founded by Tina Owen Nguyen and Cyndi Nguyen.
