Volunteering opportunities

Grant Writers, Translators & Tutors

Grant Writers: We are looking for volunteers who are experienced with grant writing (for U.S. or European grants) to share grant writing knowledge with our organization. If you are residing in Korea or visiting Seoul for a few weeks – contact us and share your skills with us! Email us if you are interested.

News Article Translators: PSCORE provides the latest news from North Korea to educate and inform North Koreans, South Koreans and the international community about current events and daily conditions in North Korea. We are in need of volunteers to translate news articles from Korean to English. This is a good opportunity for those who want to know more about the current state of North Korea and those interested in human rights. Volunteers can work from home.

Tutors: Students in our program have different backgrounds, are from different age groups, and have different skill levels. Tutors work 1:1 with students in order to best meet each student’s individual needs and learning goals. Our mentorship program seeks to enhance defectors’ abilities to negotiate better educational and employment opportunities for themselves.
