The Experience

This program's mainly focused on practicing speaking English and exchanging culture among local Koreans and also with volunteers from overseas. I believe that the best way to fully explore a certain country or a city is to actually bond and build a friendship with locals and that is what we locals here are excited to do!! We are trying to make an environment where everybody can join the conversation. No swearing or racism is allowed.

Volunteering at the coliving was an exceptional and immersive experience I highly recommend for anyone! Everyone here, the managers, other volunteers, and people we talk to at the coliving, are all extremely welcoming, kind, cool and amazing people that are easy and fun to work and live with. I learnt a lot from everyone I met in this experience, not just about Korean culture, but different cultures around the world and different occupations! There was also great amount of time for me to do exploring on my own, and with the other volunteers! The accomodation is also cozy, and has good location!

Good day! My time at the community was without a doubt a groovy experience! It was a unique way to really engulf yourself into the Korean culture, with the opportunity to talk to locals one on one, enjoy great food, sight see, have one too many Sojus and get to live with a great community of foreigners too. I recommend this experience to all.

I had a great time in Seoul with this collaboration! It felt like a home away from home, and everyone interacted like family. Work was easy, and the host was very flexible in helping me take days off for exploration! This is still a fairly new business, so they are working out some kinks; communication with volunteers in regards to new rules or requests in the living situation, and training newcomers could be improved, but everything is easy to learn, and everyone is willing to help if asked.

So many things I could say but not enough to express how amazing this place is! David, Mathieu and King Kevin are, by far, the best hosts I ever had in all the years I've been traveling and volunteering. Working at the community is something special, is chill and fun at the same time and you will have the chance to connect with so many interesting people. Not only that but you will be invited to special one class events such as art classes or special celebrations. The apartmen is super nice too and people here make it feels like home. Once the community homie always the community homie <3 Thank you guys :D
