Volunteering at Yongsan Senior Welfare Center

Itaewon Global Village Center will help out at the Yongsan Senior Welfare Center on September 21st (Wed) from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. We are looking for volunteers that can join us that day.

One of the programs of Yongsan Senior Welfare Center is an English class to help retired seniors practice their English language ability. Most of the seniors who are part of the class were professionals during their younger days, and most of them have a good command of the English language. However, as time passes, and due to the lack of people they can converse with, most of them have forgotten to use the language. Through this class, they aim to regain the confidence they used to have. By volunteering, you will be able to help them practice their English speaking skills. You don’t need to be a native English speaker to join. (BUT OF COURSE, THE ABILITY TO CONVERSE IN ENGLISH FLUENTLY IS REQUIRED.) Don’t worry if you cannot speak Korean.

Since we have to interact with seniors (who are one of the most vulnerable groups to COVID-19), we have to follow the protocols set by Yongsan Senior Welfare Center. Accordingly, only fully vaccinated foreign adults can join this activity. (*Fully vaccinated = 1 shot (Janssen) or 2 shots of Pfizer/Moderna/Aztra, etc + booster shot)

If you want to be one of the volunteers, register by sending us your name, nationality, phone number in Korea, date of birth, and your vaccination status.

Complete details will be emailed to you once we have received your registration.
