Youth ExploSive (YES) serves a creative forum for millennials working at the Indonesian explosives company, PT DAHANA. Being part of the SOEs Defense Industry Holding–DEFEND ID– YES is also a member of the defense industry millennial forum ‘Young Defend’ which was inaugurated by Deputy Minister 1 of SOEs Pahala Nugraha Mansury on March 2, 2022. Under the leadership of Adella Acqha Vico Addina, YES actively creates positive dynamics both for DAHANA, DEFEND ID, as well as gets involved in national activities.

Within DAHANA, YES holds a Millennials Talk every week on Tuesday which gives space for millennial fresh ideas for the company’s progress. Various themes have also been discussed, ranging from the utilization of company waste, new business opportunities, to DAHANA’s financial efficiency.

“Thanks God, DAHANA’s millennial members are also very enthusiastic about the Millennials Talk program. We are aware that there are many insightful ideas for the companies from the millennial generation. In fact, in every activity, we get support from seniors who provide critical inputs on the millennial ideas,” said Miss Addina (30/05).


In view of the social services, YES DAHANA is known to have been collaborating with the Social and Environmental Responsibility Unit (TJSL), DAHANA Workers Union (SEJADAH), and the Bikers Community (KOMBI), raising aid for orphans and communities around the company in the form of donations, waqf of tools prayer, takjil, and food for breaking the fast in Ramadan 2022.


Apart from that, at the national level, Miss Addina, representing DAHANA’s millennials, was selected as a volunteer for the Ministry of SOEs and the SOEs Foundation in collaboration with PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminum (Persero) to plant 300 macadamia tree seedlings, 100 pine tree seedlings, and 100 avocado tree seedlings in Lake Toba, North Sumatra on 26 – 28 March 2022.


“We also provide counseling on tree planting, distribute tree seeds to residents and provide soccer balls signed by the Minister of SOEs, Erick Thohir. It is good to be selected as a volunteer from thousands of other SOEs employees to partake in the Pilot Project of the SOEs Bakti Program for Indonesia – the Tree Planting Program in Lake Toba, North Sumatra,” said Miss Addina.

Miss Addina also said that until now, DAHANA’s top management has strongly supported the development of millennial companies who have actively participated in advancing the company with various programs they have developed. The Management also hoped that millennial activities can contribute to improvement of the  company performance.


“I hope that during this period, all Youth ExploSive management personnel can be proactive in various activities,” concluded Miss Addina.
