Local Youth Stay Project

The Local Youth Stay Project is a project in which young urban people with various skills stay in local villages and grow with those villages to reduce the problems of declining population and education inequality in different regions.

It is an expanded form of the triangular mentoring model (basic) which reduces educational gaps together with young adults in cities, and in this model, young adults are sent to reinvigorate regions and reduce educational gaps between regions.

Targets of the Local Youth Stay Project are university students and young adults who expand communities together with teenagers. Young adults accumulate job experience in companies in various fields connected to the region while staying in the area and conducting community activities needed by teenagers or the local community to become agents of change. They gain drive and advice for decisions about their career and life goals by building cooperative networks with mentoring by members of society and empowerment.

It has always been a very tense life in Seoul. It has been very difficult when I get nervous when I work and if I make a mistake. People in the region are generally generous, so I have some peace of mind.
Perhaps because I experienced fast and tight work in Seoul, I saw things that could help the region.
The experience of Seoul is needed in the region, and I think it will be used a lot.
As much as the region has given me good experiences and memories, I want to repay the region.
