My time in Daejeon was very nice. Daejeon was a chill and relaxing place and I had an amazing time volunteering, as I got to learn more about the Korean culture and traditions. Volunteering was truly a unique experience! Everyone I met there was very friendly and supportive! This was my first WP experience and I would definitely recommend.Thank you so much Russel for this opportunity!

I had a very good time at the language studio. I stayed in deajeon for one month and had a very good time. I met a lot of nice people at the accommodation and also while working. The working hours were always respected and the work is not hard especially if you enjoy talking to people. The food that is provided is just basic foods and you will probably have to buy food a lot but that also depends on yourself. For me my time was wonderful even if deajeon is a city with not that much to see. I would really like to go back at some point and spend more time there. Thank you Russell!!

This is my first international voluntary trip and I feel it was awesome. I was warmly welcomed the first night by other volunteers and as time goes by I have made a lots of friends in daejeon. The work is meaningful and local people here are friendly. It not only offer me opportunities to get immersed in Korean culture but also enable me to promote my hometown's culture. The accommodation is well located that we can get to anywhere we want on foot or by taking subway or ktx. Russell is such a sweet guy always ready to help us. And I am really grateful for your support and encouragement :)))

Daejeon is a chill city, very located. The accommodation & are simple but sufficient. I would still say that you will easily need to buy more food since it's only the basics. The work is simple too, very well organised and the perfect way to learn about Korea and to meet people. The schedule is very clear & flexible on a weekly basis, which is perfect to travel around on your days off. I'd recommend this stay.

Daejeon is well located and good to live. You are going to meet people from all over the world at the accommodation. The work is easy : 4 hours/days and you will learn a lot about Korean culture. It's so interesting to talk to them every day. You'll have plenty of time during the day before the work. I recommend this worldpackers experience Thanks Russel and everybody I spended my time with ❤️
