KMU-CCAP Volunteer (CEV) Recruitment
▶ What is KMU-CCAP?
The Keimyung Cross-Cultural Awareness Program (KMU-CCAP) has been organized by Keimyung University and supported by the Korean National C2014ommission for UNESCO, and is designed to augment education for international understanding in Korean primary and secondary schools while promoting a culture of tolerance and mutual respect. KMU-CCAP invites foreigners residing in Korea to Korean classrooms for them to show their own culture to Korean students.
▶ Role of CEV (Cultural Exchange Volunteers)
KMU-CCAP invites foreign residents in Korea (CEV) to present the culture of their homelands to Korean youth. These international emissaries prepare cultural exchange activities in collaboration with Korean Interpretation Volunteers (KIV) and school teachers, supported by foreign embassies and cultural centers as well as KNCU. By involving themselves in this unique and exciting endeavor, all participants are able to deepen their understanding of each other and broaden their commitment toward a culture of tolerance and mutual respect.
