The Experience

We provide an opportunity for both travelers and the locals here in Daejeon to get together, meet new people, learn different culture, and basically make awesome friends. The idea is to connect people from many different parts of the world, have them experience deeper aspects of Korean culture, get a feel of what it is really like to live amongst Koreans, not as a visitor, but as a part of us, one of us.

A fantastic experience. The hours are adhered to as scheduled, and the work provides an invaluable opportunity to engage with the local residents. Daejeon is a beautiful, peaceful city surrounded by nature. Locals are really nice people. The accommodation is simple and small, but conveniently located very close to the work site. It's essential to respect the rules of community living to ensure a pleasant stay, as things can become quite difficult otherwise. The provided food is basic. I would undoubtedly volunteer again because the time spent here has been wonderful.

Volunteering in Daejeon was a wonderful experience. Russell is really attentive and always in communication. Whenever you need something, he'll be there to help you. The work is also pretty easy and enjoyable. The shift is reasonable and you make great connection with the locals. They are wonderful students who will make your stay the best!

I had the best time ever in Daejeon. It definitely makes a difference that you meet people your age/vibe and I was so lucky to meet a handful of them. I would really recommend befriending the students at the Studio, because that's how I learned all the korean customs and korean culture in general. Russell is extremely caring and will help out with anything - don't be afraid to ask! I do think the apartment could do with a deep clean every once in a while, and also some better mattresses/blankets/pillows. The food is also just ingredients and ramen, but I am so thankful for the experience<33

Russell did a great job at communicating goals and expectations as well as being friendly and accommodating! I felt very welcomed and the work at the language studio was amazing for getting an inside view of Korean culture and getting to know locals. I would recommend to implement a cleaning/organization system with fellow volunteers as the accommodation can get a bit messy if gone unchecked. Other than that, it was wonderful and I'd definitely recommend this experience!

My friend and I had an absolutely wonderful experience in Daejeon. Russel is incredibly accommodating and always ready to help if anything is wrong. At one point the AC wasn't working and the same day he made sure to come and help us figure it out. Beyond grateful for my time there and the people I was able to meet through this experience. An amazing way to get to know locals, the work never felt like work :D
