Volunteer in South Korea with United Planet: 6 or 12 months

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: United Planet

United Planet logo

Ancient meets cutting edge in the unique character of South Korea. As one of the most technologically and scientifically advanced countries in Asia, South Korea is still loyal to its Confucian legacy, seeking harmony and balance in all areas of life. Tireless efforts by South Koreans have led to a tremendously successful recovery from both World War II and the Korean War. In South Korea, sunny springs are followed by hot, rainy summers, which then give way to a bountiful autumn showing of colors every year. Many travelers come to see its modern cities, but with beautiful mountains, enchanting ancient temples, and serene rice paddies, South Korea is an ideal destination for all.

United Planet is the US and Canadian member of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in South Korea, you will be hosted by ICYE South Korea, ICYE's South Korean partner organization. ICYE South Korea has been helping volunteers help South Korean communities since the mid-1980s.

Possible volunteer projects include:
- Working in a center that builds community among the disabled, both young and old
- Assisting with the daily activities of a home for abandoned children
- Helping social welfare programs that work to give elderly a good quality of life
- Supporting children from low-income backgrounds with activities, motivating them to stay interested in learning

Please visit our website for more information about the projects.
