If you want to add the github and vkontakte or any other social icon to that bar, you can do as the following:
1. Open the extras.php file in the folder path “\wp-content\themes\dw-minion\inc”. find the line 246, add the following code under line 246.

  $social_links['vkontakte'] = dw_minion_get_theme_option( 'vkontakte', '' );
  $social_links['github'] = dw_minion_get_theme_option( 'github', '' );

– Find the line 270, add the following code under line 270:

<?php if($social_links['vkontakte']!='') { ?><li class="social"><a href="<?php echo $social_links['vkontakte']; ?>"><i class="icon-vk"></i></a></li><?php } ?>
<?php if($social_links['github']!='') { ?><li class="social"><a href="<?php echo $social_links['github']; ?>"><i class="icon-github"></i></a></li><?php } ?>

2. Open the customizer.php file in the folder path “”. Find the line 237, add the following code under line 237.

      /*********vkontakte************/
    $wp_customize->add_setting('dw_minion_theme_options[vkontakte]', array(
    'default'        => '',
    'capability'     => 'edit_theme_options',
    'type'           => 'option',
  ));
  $wp_customize->add_control('vkontakte', array(
    'label'      => __('vkontakte', 'dw-minion'),
    'section'    => 'dw_minion_social_links',
    'settings'   => 'dw_minion_theme_options[vkontakte]',
  ));

  /*********github************/
    $wp_customize->add_setting('dw_minion_theme_options[github]', array(
    'default'        => '',
    'capability'     => 'edit_theme_options',
    'type'           => 'option',
  ));
  $wp_customize->add_control('github', array(
    'label'      => __('github', 'dw-minion'),
    'section'    => 'dw_minion_social_links',
    'settings'   => 'dw_minion_theme_options[github]',
  ));

3. Log in to Dashboard > Customize > Social Links, then add your link to text-box.
Hope this helps !
