The Vietnam Revolutionary Youth League or HVNCMTN (Hội Việt Nam Cách mạng Thanh niên, originally Việt Nam Thanh niên Cách mạng Đồng chí Hội) was a radical organization founded in 1925 by Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, part of colonial French Indochina then.

It was a forerunner of Vietnamese communism.[1]

Some radicals from the League, led by Trần Văn Cung left to form the Communist Party of Indochina (1929-1930).[2]
