Local Children Center in Korea is the facility for the children welfare services. The center provides children not only a shelter after the regular school, but also educational cultural opportunities. Most of the children in rural area have fewer opportunities to meet foreigners and get a high-quality English education compared to the urban area. Also, although international marriage is quite a common phenomenon in rural areas, local residents have a lack of understanding of multi-culture. So, the children are facing discrimination at school, cultural and linguistic difficulties. International volunteers can give them chances to interact with foreigners and to understand multi-culture. English can be a tool to understand Korean local children and interact with them. Big Tree Local Children Center welcomes you to check your own class with your talents and ideas. There are 7 to 15 years old and around 30 children at the center plus 3 Teachers.
