History

2013

In 2013, Daum Foundation aimed to further improve the power and range of the social impact of YouthVoice, ITcanus, and Ollybolly by extending and strengthening the participation of the people concerned in the enterprises through a closer contact with the relevant sites and by experimenting with promising ideas that would help develop new enterprises.

YouthVoice proved its potential by providing the media education program through which the voice of the young can be heard, and by successfully carrying out the model project that excavates and supports educators. YouthVoice also had an opportunity to broaden its scope through an active cooperation with the outside. YouthVoice Lab offered a variety of programs in which the youth themselves planned and participated; and its media conference and pre-production support encouraged many young people to freely voice their opinions and ideas through the media.

ITcanus strived to focus on the education support programs that could reflect the needs felt at the actual sites through the Internet Leadership Program, in which the former participants and the library directors from across the nation participated and the ChangeON Conference Planning Project. With ChangeON@ extended to the cities of Gwangju, Cheongju, and Jeju, the cases utilized in the local sites were excavated and shared at the ChangeON conference. The program's technical support helped make the 4th Social Innovation Camp36 much more successful than expected; and, the campaign "eHaru616" and "SoriArchive" played an essential role in preserving various digital contents for the use of the following generations.

Ollybolly had a fruitful year in which its enterprises enjoyed much positive external recognition and appreciation; for example, it received the Presidential Prize in the Category of Cultural Diversity of the Sejong Culture Award. This year, Ollybolly uploaded the contents of picture fairy tales from various countries such as Tibet and Cambodia. To improve the utility and application of the contents, Ollybolly also carried out a program support enterprise with five different organizations. Four more Ollybolly sections were opened, which created more diverse local footholds. These local sites were provided with the revised and improved Ollybolly Education Manual, which in turn helped test the various applications of the Ollybolly picture books.
