Volunteer ESL Teaching

KUENSAEM SCHOOL for North Korean Refugees was founded in 2008 by a North Korean couple when they saw the strong focus on English education in South Korea. Now the centre also teaches maths, science, history and Korean during the week. The aim of the school is to give the students who are new to South Korea a fighting chance to catch up with their peers. If you're interested in volunteering a couple of hours on Saturdays, email Jennifer at nk.refugee.tutoring@gmail.com   

 H.O.P.E.  (Helping Others Prosper through English) is a non-profit organization, established in 2008 and run by Canadian teachers who are looking to make a positive impact on the communities where they live.  Our objective is to provide a safe and accessible place for underprivileged children to develop their English skills and equip them for a brighter future in further education, free of charge.  We are constantly in need of more volunteers as the number of children from low income families and orphanages is overwhelming.  Website: www.alwayshope.or.kr.  Contact: public.hope@gmail.com.

Mustard Seed meets roughly twice a month on Saturdays for three hours in the afternoon near Sindaebang station (Line 2, Stop 231).
