We at Seongnam Youth Foundation holds some programs of mutual exchange, volunteering, and backpacking. About three hundred Seongnam students are sent abroad every year. Also, about one hundred international students visit to Seongnam City to volunteer and have cultural exchange with Seongnam youth. We hope it can be a good chance for Seongnam youth to make the world with international students and understand each other by cultural exchange.
Mutual exchange offers an opportunity for mutual understanding and cultural exchange by inviting international students or visiting their cities. The international students are from the cities which have established an exchange agreement with our foundation. It is a meaningful activity that you will invite the friends, who you met abroad, to Korea and introduce them of Korean culture. Promote friendship with international students by planting trees to combat desertification in China, building global cultural houses in Vietnam, having an ecological experience and performing together in Korea.
Myanmar, Laos, Kazakhstan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam are the countries that Seongnam youth gave a hand. Seongnam students will help them improve their facilities, share recreation games and eating habits, and experience cultural exchange for mutual understanding.
You will plan the backpacking. Of course, locations are arranged, but you need to plan everything else. You will make your own travel plan including booking accommodation. Dream about making new friends abroad while traveling. It will be worth it.
Is it international exchange only out of Korea? You can meet international students through our homestay program or camp activities in Korea. We need your help to introduce international friends about the pride of Seongnam.
Make your life through Asian Youth Conference. You might have a lot of other things to do and might be tired of studying, but it can be an investment on your future.
