What we do
In September this year I was given a precious opportunity to attend the ICYCW Asia Leaders’ Meeting of training and exchange held in Butuan-City, Philippines.
As a part of the preparation, Korea YCW studied the situation of life of young people in our country in order to bring to the meeting young people’s concerns, worries and hopes to share with other YCWs in Asia. This included reflection on: Internet addiction, extremely expensive tuition at the University and obligatory military service for young men.
