Korea Trip Summer 2017

Posted on May 1st, 2017

Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Aug 6, 2017
Last Day: Aug 20, 2017

iVolunteer is a student run, non-profit organization at UCLA. Our org is committed to domestic and international volunteering to assist the local communities of interest and immersing ourselves in cultural exchange.

Every summer iVolunteer offers a 2 week long international trip in collaboration with the Yeoju Institute of Technology to Korea. The Korea trip will be fourteen days (2 weeks) long and start August 1st. Our focus for this trip is to allow volunteers to truly experience Korean culture while participating in a motley of volunteering exercises.

In the past, such volunteering events included teaching English at North Korean refugees, volunteering time at an orphanage, assisting the disabled, agricultural volunteering, visiting elderly homes, and more. A certificate will be presented at the end of the trip to award each volunteer with 80 hours of community service.

Of course, many cultural interactions and explorations are included. Volunteers will be able to shop in Seoul, visit the border of North and South Korea (DMZ zone), spend a day at Everland (the Korea amusement park), visit sites of tourists attractions and much more!

The trip fee for this unforgettable experience is only $920. This includes all transportation within the country, food, lodging, and entry fees to tourist locations for the volunteers’ duration of stay. This does not include traveler’s insurance or airline flight.

All those who apply by May 1st will have a $20 reduced trip fee, for a total of $900. If you refer another applicant who participates on the trip, your trip fee will be reduced to $880. We welcome everyone, including those outside of UCLA to join us, so if you would like to invite friends, family, or anyone else, please feel free to have them sign up as well.
