MUNGYEONG (Korea Bizwire) – The ‘Wee Center’ at the Mungyeong Office of Education hosted a ‘New Start Camp’ for 60 teenagers on November 19.
The camp was part of a program to prevent students from giving up school. Detailed experiences of different workplaces were provided to the students, helping them map out their future careers.
The program that day involved experiencing the careers of flight attendants and baristas, and also included a tour of universities.
One student who participated in the program responded that she finally figured out what she wanted to be in the future. “I just had a vague thought that I wanted to be a flight attendant. But after I experienced what it would be like at a facility which was the same as a real plane, I was sure that’s what I want to be when I grow up.”
The head of Wee Center, Kim Young-woo, commented that he is determined to continue hosting the camp. “Through the camp, students can look into their positive selves, and also find the breadth of mind to respect what others are good at. We hope that we can help more students by continuously hosting the camp.”
