By giving them the opportunity to experience the advanced and developed motherland, we will help our Korean American youth to acquire pride and raise consciousness of their Korean heritage as well as the understanding the traditions and customs of the motherland.
They will tour places such as Korea Folk Village, Sukgulam, Bulguksa, The Independence Hall and learn the traditional customs by experiencing Pansori, Samulnolee, and JunJu’s Traditional Village. In addition a tour that includes Imjingak, the Observatory, Dorasan Station will provide an opportunity for our KAYAC youth to feel the reality and pain of the divided motherland while the army training camp experience will give them a taste of a different world and experience.
