Expats who are longer-term residents in Korea are being sought to take part in Seoul Global Center’s Neighbors From Afar Program. The project seeks people from different countries to commit to take one or two classes a month where they will introduce their country to Korean kids.

A Korean volunteer will accompany the foreigner during the hour and a half classes during which they can introduce their country’s nature, national flag, national flower and other information through pictures and video clips.

Those taking part are also encouraged to share their national songs and foods with children at the elementary and high schools visited.
