Program Overview

 

The World Culture Awareness Programme (WCAP) is organized by the Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Education in cooperation with POSTECH. This program provides POSTECH international members with the opportunity to tutor and introduce their home cultures to Korean students at local elementary, middle, and high schools. Thus, POSTECH International Relations is currently looking for international members of POSTECH who are interested in participating in 2016 WCAP program, 2nd semester. Participants will be paired with Korean translators who will be selected by POSTECH International Relations. Participants and translators will visit local schools together as a team, and introduce Korean students to their home country’s culture, traditions, and history. This program will ultimately help to enhance students’ understanding and respect towards the cultures of the participants.

 

*There will be a compensation of 50,000 KRW per class provided to the participants (80,000 KRW per block time (two classes combined).
