Korean youths have expressed their interest in youth work and volunteering to the Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou, at the World Cultural Camp.

Mr Tuitubou is currently attending the 2017 World Cultural Camp with other Youth Ministers from around the world, hosted by the International Youth Fellowship (IYF) in Busan, South Korea.

During the College Student Leaders’ Conference at the World Camp on Tuesday, Korean students engaged with Mr Tuitubou on issues affecting Fijian youths.

“Discussions were based on issues affecting Fijian youths and how Korean students can better understand our situation and how they can design strategies if they are sent as volunteers to Fiji,” Mr Tuitubou said.

“The strategies are part of IYF’s approach towards youth development globally.”

Mr Tuitubou added that Fiji is fortunate to have youths from other countries and organisations who are willing to help our youths overcome challenges to build a better future for our country.

The Youth and Sports Minister, youth leaders, Government representatives, faith-based organisation representatives, academics and youths from around the world were welcomed on Sunday by IYF founder, Pastor Ock Soo Park.

“We have great interest in working in Fiji and partnering with the Ministry of Youth and Sports in helping youths make a better Fiji,” Korean student group leader Hye Yun Lee said.

“We are positive that we will have an opportunity to come and work with Fijian youths.

“We are fortunate to have an opportunity with Fiji’s Youth and Sports Minister and gather more information about Fiji.”

Ms Hye added that students had extensively conducted research about Fiji and it was a bonus having Mr Tuitubou with them on Wednesday.

“We seized this opportunity to draw from the Minister of Youth and Sports issues related to youths in Fiji and the information really puts things in perspective for us,” she said.
