History

2014

As the year to prepare for the 10 and 20 years ahead, this year became the year that changed the Youthvoice Project. We shared our intent and purpose about discovering and training educator in the media field with YouthVoice. We also met a lot of media and health educators, and the continuance of Saturday school helped us broaden our educators' scope of activities. Our Frentor was run and sponsored in an independent way to help adolescents think for themselves.

For ITcanus, 2014 was the year of starting new businesses. <eharu616> and <Social Innovation Camp36> met its 10th and 5th anniversaries, respectively. <eharu 616> held the discussion searching for the meaning of its 10 years, and participated in spreading the social issues by creating a special theme, the 'Sewol ferry issue', which was last year's biggest incident. <Social Innovation Camp36> rediscovered and supported ideas from the last 5 years and improved the quality of the results better than ever, thus increasing the applicability in the real world. The 7th <NGO Media Conference, ChangeON> was held in Busan for the first time, away from the premiering city of Seoul, and it opened an opportunity for the regional NGOs to learn in-depth knowledge and insight about the media. <NPO Research> also had a chance to look closely into the regional issues through the complete assessment of Busan NGOs, groping for the training support in order to allow the regional NGOs to be closer.

Ollybolly produced various online stories and reinforced connection with the organizations to spread cultural diversity and influence in our society. After providing picture books to Rwanda for the first in Africa, it continued to expand the contents by providing picture books to Iran and Indonesia. To make it more accessible to the larger contents, we reorganized the mobile application to meet child's point of view. Also, we strengthened applicability of the Ollybolly picture books and reconnected with the people on-site by sponsoring the cultural diversity supporting program along with the 9 other projects, and opening 1 new Ollybolly section.

The 2014 YouthVoice media educator

Media education that started from small desire to support various voices of teenagers already reached 13 years. Through various media education experiences, we earned self-confidence, not conceit, and we felt that media operation and media education support business are really needed for teenagers. So Youthvoice prepared a support project for educator's growth rather than for education curriculum growth, and the media education for 15 teams (individual) was held.

Both of them were supported for the purpose of expressing and spreading the ideas through the use of media.
