If you are looking for more meaningful volunteer work, pay attention to the Beautiful College Student Overseas Volunteer Group (hereinafter referred to as the Beautiful College Student Overseas Volunteer Group) sponsored by 오피사이트 자원봉사 후원회. Because I can plan a detailed volunteer program by myself. I met two people who said that the overseas volunteer group of beautiful college students became a turning point in college life and heard the detailed story.
Nice to meet you. Please introduce yourself.
HY: Hello, I’m a student at Korea University’s College of Life Sciences. I was the head of the accounting products team of the overseas volunteer group of beautiful university students and went to Myanmar for overseas service.
Min-seo: Hello, I’m Baek, majoring in occupational therapy at Gyeongbok University. I went to Cambodia for volunteer work abroad.
How did you apply for the overseas volunteer group of beautiful college students?
HY: I had a dream of volunteering abroad since I was young. He looked cool in a white t-shirt and a vest. Since the office site is so famous for overseas volunteer work for college students, I applied right away after seeing the recruitment announcement.
Min-seo: I was interested in the educational environment of children as much as I dreamed of becoming a pediatric occupational therapist. I just found out about the overseas volunteer group of beautiful college students and applied to create a better educational environment for local children.
Please briefly introduce what kind of volunteer work you did.
Young-kyun: I usually did ‘education volunteer’ to teach children in the morning and ‘work volunteer’ to build toilets in the afternoon. Members of music, art, and science taught two to three subjects each, and I took charge of introducing Korea and making vuvuzela.
Min-seo: The members who left for Cambodia built a library. I carried bricks and dirt and painted them. I even painted the classroom. It was about using the body for the children.
What was your favorite or memorable activity?
HY: The sports day we had on the last day was the most memorable. The team members in charge of the sports day must have been burdened to plan the program without much information about the school, but it seemed amazing that they finished it perfectly until the end.
Min-seo: I also remember the sports day on the last day of volunteer work. I remember the children laughing, playing jokes, and having fun. I was so happy that I thought, “I can’t forget this moment.”
We also conducted Korean programs such as making lucky bags and playing yut, and I wonder how you prepared this plan.
Young-kyun: I met with the members in advance at the preparatory camp before I started overseas volunteer work. A few former riders came to the staff to give advice and have an idea meeting.
Min-seo: We decided on two to three class topics per group, and there were more than 20 opinions from each group. After getting advice from the staff and the office site, I made detailed plans such as preparations carefully.
Did you do volunteer work often before applying to the overseas volunteer group of Beautiful University students?
Min-seo: I didn’t do a lot of volunteer work until I took a leave of absence after my second year. When I took a leave of absence, I joined the external cooperation volunteer club called “Snail School” and did volunteer work often.
Did your experience in the volunteer club help you apply for the overseas volunteer group of college students?
Min-seo: Through the volunteer club, I realized the joy of volunteering while doing outings with disabled children. If I have a chance, I have always thought that I want to be a strength to children in need. I applied right away because there was a cooperative club screening in the overseas volunteer group of beautiful college students.
The 오피사이트 Volunteer Support Association has signed an agreement with a college student volunteer club to provide various support programs to continuously revitalize volunteer activities. The “cooperative club screening” is a screening that only members of the cooperative club can apply.
Hwi Young got accepted as an ordinary college student. What tips do you give to college students who are applying this time?
HY: The competition rate is so high that you’ll be worried even before you apply. I also sang a song that I changed because I felt pressured to leave a strong impression in the interview. Ha ha.
Looking back, I think what you need to do when you do volunteer work abroad is to have a relaxed mind to harmonize well. We need 30 people who lead us silently so that everyone can be together rather than a few people who stand out. I think it can be a great unit if you show your relaxed mind and sincerity.
When was the most proud moment?
Young-kyun: The moment I said before we parted ways, “I hope you guys will be helpful to someone like our members in the future.” I think the spirit of volunteerism spreads in the process of helping someone who helped me.
Min-seo: I felt proud to see the children go home with what they made during class. I was happy because I felt like I gave special experiences and memories to my children.
If you could recommend an overseas volunteer group of beautiful college students as an experienced person, which friends would you recommend to?
Young-kyun: I recommend it to friends who are confident that they have done all the activities they can as a college student. I didn’t have high expectations for overseas volunteer work because it was just like that, but when I experienced it myself, all the memories were deeply established in my heart. I think it could be a turning point in college for someone.
Min-seo: I hope those who are tired of their daily lives and those who want to keep good memories will try. There are many friends who hesitate because they think they must have some ability to be selected, but even ordinary college students can do it.
Can you say something to college students who are thinking about volunteering abroad?
Young-kyun: I think the activists that the office site wants are not perfect people but college students like you who can grow up together. I’m sure that the three-month journey that young people gather to prepare for the full-day service is a valuable activity that will be remembered forever!
Min-seo: Overseas volunteering is “Precious memories, memories, gifts.” If you know the joy of sharing, you can get something precious that you can’t get anywhere through overseas volunteer work. I hope you don’t worry and apply.
