  • “Helping youths from immigrant backgrounds within their career choices which they have the right to dream and grow”
    An event was held for the youth with immigrant backgrounds who came to Korea, a foreign country and are struggling with language and cultural differences and worrying about career issues. Ansan Global Youth Center (Chairman Lee Seung-mi) held the ‘2022 Career Camp for Immigrant Background Youth’ at the Ansan Olympic Gymnasium on October 22nd. Kim Seon-mi, head of the Foreign Residents Support Division in Ansan City, said in a congratulatory address, saying, “All of you who came to Ansan with diverse growth environments and experiences from various countries are valuable resources. I hope that the future of all the youth who participated in today’s event will be as high and as bright and rich as the autumn sky in Korea.” The reason Ansan Global Youth Center is able to hold such an event is because of the support of Ansan City. We really liked the congratulatory remarks from Manager Kim Seon-mi. The event was held in the order of a celebratory performance, talk show with experienced seniors, special lectures of professionals and labor education. In particular, the talk show and special lectures of professionals were very beneficial to the youths from immigrant backgrounds who attended. The seniors who have already overcame difficulties while attending school in Ansan have revealed their experiences. The information presented by Choi Young-jin, Adele, Choi Yelena, and Rita Endou will be very valuable information for youth with immigrant backgrounds in other regions and their parents. So, Papaya Story is going to translate all the stories of these four people into 5 languages from October to November. A special lecturer appeared in the special lectures of professionals. It was Park Hyung-jin, the chief of staff of Ansan Mayor Lee Min-geun. Park Hyung-jin, chief of staff, was born in 1988 and went to China when he was in elementary school, where he received a bachelor's degree from Tsinghua University in China and a master's degree in political science from Korea University. So, he has experience of living as a youth with an immigration background in China. In the lecture that day, Chief Park talked about the difficulties living in a foreign country to the Ansan youths with immigrant backgrounds, and suggested three keywords: friend, language, and place. Papaya Story will also translate this lecture into 5 languages soon. Chairman Lee Seung-mi talked about the this day's event, saying, “In addition to talk shows and special lectures, we have prepared a college admissions counseling booth and a job experience booth for youth from immigrant backgrounds who are struggling with career issues. We will do our best to help you, who have the right to dream and grow, settle well in Ansan and achieve your dreams.” This day's event was prepared by the head of the center and the staff with all their efforts, who are always concerned about the welfare of youths with immigrant backgrounds, The laughter of youths with immigrant backgrounds continued throughout the venue.

  • Middle-age immigrated youths, made university career choices like this!
    Hello, I am Rita. I came from Thailand to Korea when I was in the second grade of elementary school. I came to Korea because my parents were missionaries, and all five of my family came with me. I came here when I was young, so I don't remember much of what happened in Thailand. Elementary school life - studying Korean I came to Korea and attended Wonil Elementary School. I studied Korean separately in class at Wonil Elementary School. It was a bit difficult, but I think I managed to get through it anyway. I think I couldn't enjoy school life because I was learning Korean and adjusting. Even I didn’t know the kids well, so there was no one to play with. From the 4th grade onwards, I got used to it a bit and made a lot of friends. When I was in middle school, to be honest, there were things I regret because I was so quiet. I don't have many memories of my school days. At that time, I had to adapt and I didn't know what to do. And if I wanted to adjust to Korea, I need to able to speak the language first, and then I can do or not whatever I want, so I think that’s why I learned Korean all the time. Even when I was in middle school, spelling and pronunciation were a little difficult, but at that time, I was doing a play. I think my Korean has improved a lot as I read and memorized the script every day and improved my pronunciation and voice. I had a hard time at that time. From home to school, I took the bus for 1 hour and 2 hours as a round trip to go to elementary school alone. There were no schools that accepted foreigners back then. It's a lot better now. At that time, there were no teachers to help foreigners. The homeroom teacher has to take care of all her classmates, so I don't think she had the time to take care of students from abroad. Middle School Life - Making Friends I learned more Korean through social life than by studying. I think I approached people first. When I was a kid, I looked like a complete foreigner, and I was teased a lot because I had short hair and dark skin. It was very difficult. I don't know what to say or how to say it in Korean, but I know I'm being bullied, and there's nothing I can do about it, so I just put up with it and continued to approach my friends first. I think the kids slowly approached me as if they were just friends. That's why I think I grew up early because of these things. As I said before, I went to elementary school far away. Then, when I went to a middle school near my house, I didn't have any friends. ‘I thought I should study hard now, so I studied really hard until my second year quietly. I worked really hard on my notes to keep up with the class. Still, I couldn't keep up with my studies, so I gave up around the 3rd grade of middle school, thinking that I couldn't study, and that I had to go to high school for the arts and physical education. My family was not in good shape to go to academy, and there was no place to help. I don't know what the exam will be, but it was easier because I could prepare for the performance evaluation. So, I prepared hard for the performance evaluation and raised my school credit a lot. High School Life-Career Choice Most of my Korean friends go to general high schools, but foreign friends cannot keep up with general high schools because it is difficult. The 1st, 8th and 9th periods are all general subjects, so it is difficult to follow along, there are so many subjects, it is difficult to take exams, and it is very difficult to manage your grades, so I recommend going to a specialized high school. I study general subjects at specialized high schools, but because I only take a few specific subjects, it is easy to follow and I can manage myself well, so it is not bad when I go to college. I would like to recommend that you choose a major you are interested in from among the majors in specialized high schools. However, going to a specialized high school is not easy. I need to have a certain score and body to go, but I was around 140 points. So, at first, I was going to the Fashion Design department at Design Culture High School, but I dropped out and went to Ansan Technical High School, my last hope. This is my personal opinion. If I went to a regular high school, I don't think I would have had a chance to know what I like. Instead I would just have to keep studying. The specialized high school I attended had only four general subjects in the third year, including Korean, English, and Mathematics. And the rest were all major subjects. I had a really good time in high school. It wasn't a big problem and it was just because it was my favorite major. As for my major, I enjoyed studying the subjects I chose, doing things like drawing and designing, and grading them based on that. It's my favorite major, so I had a lot of fun. University life - constant worries This continues into my college life. The good thing is that I designed it when I was in specialization. I learned in advance so I could do better even after I went to college. Here, because I've learned, I'm a little better than the other kids. It may be a little more convenient to choose a university because of the arts and sports. If it were nursing or electronics, I think we might not be able to keep up. As an adult, I was worried about where to live. Now is the time to make a decision. So, first of all, which country do I speak better? I'm thinking about whether I can really make a living when I go back to Thailand, or if I can really go back and do well with the job and major I have now.

  • Gimpo City Supports Childcare Fees for Foreign Children... Providing Universal Childcare Opportunities!
    The city of Gimpo made a decision to aid childcare fees for foreign children attending daycare centers in the city from September. The “Foreign Childcare Fee Support Project” is designed to reduce the economic burden by aiding childcare fees to foreign families and to provide universal childcare opportunities regardless of nationality. In the past, foreign children attending daycare were excluded from childcare aides, and children aged 0-2 had to pay about 364,000 won to 499,000 won, and children aged 3-5 years had to pay about 280,000 won every month. However, with this measure by the city of Gimpo, children of foreign families can attend daycare without any worries. The city of Gimpo secured an additional supplementary budget this year to provide a monthly childcare fee of 280,000 won for foreign children aged 0-5 who are funded at daycare centers in the city. The city of Gimpo estimated that about 160 foreign children in the city would benefit from this project. The target of this project is children who have resided in the jurisdiction for more than 90 days and can issue an alien registration card and a certificate of alien registration. The Gimpo City Childcare Division said, “The smooth communication between the public and private sectors played a big role in the background that Gimpo City was able to conduct a 'warm administration' for our children. We will continue to strive to make Gimpo a city where all children, including foreign children, grow up happily.” Mayor Kim Byeong-soo met with the Immigrant Women's Association on September 6 and Sakhalin compatriots one after another on the 7th and said, "In Gimpo where you live, 'we' will take priority over 'you' and 'I'. Many “our citizens” from all over the world live together in Gimpo. We will make Gimpo city full of diversity and inclusion.” Reporter Jieun Lee

  • To what extent are children of multicultural families experiencing school violence in Korea?
    I am a marriage immigrant with an F-6 visa. My child is going to enter elementary school next year. My question is about school violence in Korea.  If I watch TV news, I often see incidents of school violence and discrimination. So as a parent, I feel insecure. I heard a lot of similar stories from mothers of multicultural families around me. I want to know what the facts are and how to deal with them. According to the ‘First Survey of School Violence in 2021’ announced by the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education, the damage response rate for school violence was 0.9%. The national damage response rate is 1.1%. The damage response rate by school level is 2.3% for elementary school, 0.4% for middle school, and 0.2% for high school. The type of damage was verbal abuse (41.9%), group bullying (14.3%), physical violence (11.8%), cyberbullying (11.1%), and stalking (6.5%). The survey was conducted by 942,000 students from 4th grade of elementary to 3rd grade of high school in Gyeonggi-do. The problem is that children from multicultural families have more experiences of school violence. According to the announcement by the Korea Educational Development Institute, the victimization rate of school violence among students from multicultural families was 8.2% as of 2018, which is much higher than that of 1.3% of the total students in the same year (Ministry of Education, 2019). The main types of damage were ‘verbal violence’ (61.9%), ‘group bullying’ (33.4%), and ‘swearing and slander through internet chatting, e-mail, and cell phone’ 11.4%. This survey alone shows that the questioner's concerns are well-founded. However, the Korean government and school sites respond quickly to school violence. As you can see from the research survey involving over 1 million children from all over the country every year, the Korean government is taking this issue very seriously. There is also a well-established system to support students who have experienced bullying at school. All schools have a ‘School Violence Measures Committee’, which strives to have an apology and prevention of recurrence of school violence perpetrators at school sites, as well as to provide disciplinary measures and victims damage recovery. Therefore, awareness of school violence among children is increasing day by day. According to a survey by the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education, the positive behavior of children who witnessed school violence was 69.3%, comforting and helping a friend who was victimized (33.6%), stopping a friend who beats or bullying them (18.6%), notifying or reporting to people around such as guardians, teachers, and police officers. (17.1%), etc.  When school violence happens to your child, it is possible to prevent further damage by making sure that the child notify the mother or teacher and parents respond proactively in the early stages. papaya story

  • How do youth with immigrant background enter university in Korea
    As the number of foreign residents residing in Korea increases, the number of youths from immigrant backgrounds is also increasing. When these children grow up and go to university, mothers or fathers from abroad immediately fall into great confusion. Because they have not experienced the Korean curriculum, they do not know what preparations are needed to prepare for the child's college entrance. With the help of the Suwon Global Youth Dream Center, a support organization for youth with immigrant backgrounds, we have compiled the necessary advice for foreign students preparing for university entrance in Korea. (Question 1)I am a youth of foreign nationality. I want to go to university in Korea. What should I do? (Answer 1)Foreign students can also enter Korean universities. This is the ‘foreigner screening’.Foreigner screeningcan only be applied by foreign students with foreign nationality, and they compete with each other to enter the university. Unlike the entrance exam for Korean students, the foreigner screening does not determine how many students will be selected, so all students can enter as long as they meet the qualifications. However, not all universities have aforeigner screening, so the options are narrow. (Question 2)Exactly what qualifications do I need to meet? (Answer 2)First, you need to check the nationality of yourself and your parents. In the case of foreigner screening, both the guardians (mom and dad) and the applicant must be foreign nationals to apply. If the mother has acquired Korean citizenship after she came to Korea, you cannot apply for the foreigner screening. In this case, you must apply through the Korean screening. If you are a Korean and have studied all elementary, middle, and high school courses abroad, you can apply through the Overseas Citizenship Screening. However, the recruiting amount is small for the Overseas Koreans. (Question 3)What documents are required to apply for the foreigner screening? (Answer 3)First of all, you need a ▲high school diploma and transcript. Students who have graduated from high school in Korea can apply with their Korean high school diploma and transcript. If you graduated from high school in a foreign country, you must notarize the diploma and transcript of the school you graduated from. For notarization, you must prepare an apostille confirmation or a confirmation issued by the Korean consulate in the area where you graduated. In addition, diplomas and transcripts must be certified for translation into Korean or English. Students who have not completed high school in a foreign country or have difficulty notarizing can take the Korean GED and submit their transcripts instead. There are not many schools where you can apply only for the GED. ▲ Test scores of TOPIK level 4 or higher are also required. Korean language proficiency of level 3 or higher is required, but there are many schools that usually require a score of level 4 or higher, and some schools offer scholarships based on the results of the TOPIK, so be sure to prepare. ▲Certificate of family relations or if you are from China, you need a Hogubu ▲Guardian’s passport ▲Student alien registration card, etc. A notarized English or Korean translation is also required for the Family Relations Certificate and Hogubu. ▲A bank statement is also required.  Most universities in Korea require a bankbook balance of US$20,000 or more from the student or guardian (parent) in order to know whether if it’s possible for a stable study environment for foreign students. The bankbook balance can be either from your home country bank or at the Korean bank. (Question 4)Does the status of residence matter? (Answer 4)If it is necessary to change to a student visa (D-2) depending on the type of visa the student currently has, it must be done. If you have permanent residency, you do not need to change it. To change it to your student visa, you can visit the Immigration Office in your area before the classesstart. For visa change documents, you need the integrated application form given by the university, a copy of your passport, alien registration card, one passport photo, and a standard admission permit. *Counseling for college admissions for youth with immigrant backgrounds Suwon Global Youth Dream Center 031-247-1324 Ansan Global Youth Center 031-599-1770

  • Is it possible to have multiple citizenships for children of multicultural families in Korea?
    Marriage immigrant women who came to Korea through an international marriage cannot but think about their children's nationality. In Korea, the nationality of children is granted based on the nationality of the parents, so if either parent is Korean, they can have Korean citizenship. In addition, Korea recognizes multiple citizenship if a child is born through an international marriage. Therefore, children of multicultural families can have multiple citizenships if the other country also accepts multiple citizenships. One problem is that South Korea has military service obligations. In the case of mid-immigrant teenager males, even if they were born abroad and acquired nationality after coming to Korea, they must also be required to serve in the military. The Military Service Act, amended in 2010, stipulates that “all mixed-race Koreans born on or after January 1, 1992, regardless of appearance, race or skin color, must fulfill their military service obligations through active service.” According to this military service obligation, Korean men over the age of 18 must serve in the military for about two years. A person with multiple nationalities must use a Korean passport when leaving Korea or entering Korea, and can use only one passport abroad. Reporter Song Hasung

  • Gyeonggi-do expands high school admission information session for multicultural families
    Gyeonggi-do has decided to significantly increase the number of 'admission briefing sessions' this year for parents of multicultural families who are having difficulties due to a lack of information on entering advanced schools. In addition, it was decided to expand the middle school admission briefing sessions held last year to high school this year. Gyeonggi-do, city gun, and Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education participate in the ‘Multicultural Family Admission Process Briefing’, where local supervisors and teachers participate as instructors to explain the middle and high school system, curriculum, and preparation for admission, and answer questions. In addition, multilingual guide materials are distributed and interpretation is provided in advance to help participants understand. Last year, Gyeonggi Province held 15 middle school admission process briefing sessions for multicultural families in 11 cities and guns, including Suwon and Goyang. 95% of participating parents (guardians) hoped to re-participate, and evaluated that it was helpful for their child's admission. As a result, Gyeonggi Province decided to expand to high school course from this year and hold an school admission briefing session in consideration of the fact that children of multicultural families are entering high school in earnest. This year, the middle school course will be held 26 times in 21 cities and guns including Suwon and Yongin, and the high school course will be held 14 times in 14 cities and guns including Bucheon and Namyangju. The period runs sequentially from April to November. Any parent of a multicultural family with school-age children (including some non-multicultural families) can apply through the city, gun, or multicultural family support center. The application period differs depending on each education schedule, so for inquiries, please contact the Gyeonggi Family Multicultural Division (031-8008-4427). Choi Young-mook, head of the Gyeonggi-do Family and Multicultural Division, said, “I hope that the briefing session will be helpful for multicultural families who are interested in their children’s education but are having difficulties due to lack of information. We will actively support multicultural families to overcome the difficulties they face in the process of raising children.”  Reporter Jieun Lee

  • Can foreign children enter daycare or kindergarten?
    It is important for registered or undocumented foreign children aged 0-7 to attend day care centers or kindergartens. This is because parents need someone to look after them while they are economically active. We looked at what kind of support the Korean government and local governments are providing to foreign children aged 0-7. Kindergarten Kindergarten is a place for children between the ages of 5 and 7 attend for educational purposes. Currently, kindergartens are managed by each provincial office of education. For this reason, each local government differs in the contents of the kindergarten tuition support for foreign children. Six education offices across the country (Seoul, Incheon, Gwangju, Gyeonggi, Jeonbuk, and Gyeongbuk) will provide 150,000 won per month for public and 350,000 won per month as childhood tuition (Nuri course fee) for private education for infants with foreign nationality starting March this year. In the case of city A, if it is a national or public kindergarten, foreign children only have to pay 33,000 won per month for tuition and field trips. As of 2021, private kindergartens have to pay 330,000 won for infant tuition and 281,000 won for parents, but you can pay the remaining amount because you will receive 350,000 won in support. However, as undocumented foreign children are not eligible for support, you have to pay 611,000 won in full for private kindergartens. A city education office official said, “Originally, national and public kindergartens are a place that many children want to attend because tuition is low, but recently, due to the low birth rate, there are enough seats for foreign children to enter. "Call me first to see if the slot is available," he said. The official also said, "I know that there are very few cases of refusal of admission for undocumented foreign children. It is recommended that kindergartens allow admission even if they inquire about the admission of undocumented foreign children. However, it will be burdensome because there is little support for tuition," he said. Day care center A daycare center is a place where children aged 0-7 attend, and the purpose of daycare is more than education. Unlike kindergartens, there are not many local governments that support childcare fees at daycare centers. Currently, the amount that foreign children have to pay when attending daycare ranges from 499,000 won to 280,000 won for national and public daycare centers. The younger children are, the more expensive childcare is. Private daycare centers cost 499,000 won to 451,000 won. Only some local governments, such as Guro-gu and Geumcheon-gu, Seoul, have been supporting 20% of the parental burden since March of this year. Ansan, the city with the largest number of foreign residents, has been providing 220,000 won for 0-2 years old and 240,000 won for 3-5 years old since March of this year. Siheung City will provide 260,000 won to children aged 0-5 this year, and Bucheon City will provide 280,000 won to children aged 3-5 this year. Gunpo City has been providing 100,000 won per child aged 0-5 since January last year. However, the bigger problem is that daycare centers can refuse admission itself. A city official said, "Since the director of the daycare center has the authority to decide on admission to the daycare center, although the city hall encourages directors of the daycare centers to grant admission as much as possible, but we do not have the authority to legally enforce it just because they refuse." Currently discussing support for foreign children In May 2019, the National Human Rights Commission of Korea recommended that the Minister of Health and Welfare come up with a support plan as stipulated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in relation to the Korean government's failure to subsidize childcare fees for foreign children. However, the Ministry of Health and Welfare announced in August 2021 that it could not accept this recommendation, saying that “the target of the social security system is the national citizen.” However, in Korean society, efforts to expand childcare support for foreign children to daycare centers are continuing. In July 2021, National Assembly member Ko Young-in of the Democratic Party of Korea (Ansan Danwon-gap, Gyeonggi-do) proposed the ‘Partial Amendment to the Infant and Toddler Childcare Act’ to allow foreign children to receive childcare subsidies. However, this law has not been passed and is pending. In addition, the Seoul City Council, Gyeonggi-do Council, and Chungcheongbuk-do Council continue to urge support for childcare fees for foreign children. With the efforts of many local governments and conscientious Koreans, it is expected that foreign children will soon be able to receive childcare support just like Korean children. However, it is unfortunate that there is hardly any discussion about support for undocumented foreign children. Reporter Song Hasung

  • What should I do when my child is denied admission to a Korean school?
    <사진=안산시글로벌청소년센터 다문화 위탁형대안학교 꿈빛학교수료식> High school There are still cases in the school field where the principal refuses to admit or transfer foreign (multicultural) students to high school. In the future, the standards and procedures for high school admission, transfer, and transfer of foreign students will be decided by the superintendent of education, not the principal, so this seems to disappear. The Ministry of Education decided to amend some of the Enforcement Decrees of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act with the same content at the State Council meeting on March 15th. In the meantime, in front-line schools, the principal decided on the admission of foreign (multicultural) students according to school regulations. As a result, it is true that the admission of foreign students was refused due to the lack of Korean. An official from the Ministry of Education said, "Children who were denied admission due to lack of clear standards for admission were heartbroken and gave up their studies or visited alternative schools," adding, "The superintendent will come up with guidelines such as 'providing education to students with poor Korean'.". Due to the new standard, it is expected that the rejection of foreign (multicultural) students in high schools will disappear. However, even if this new standard does not apply, there is a plan to first accept foreign students from high schools and then send them to a consignment-type multicultural alternative school for entrusted education. A consignment-type multicultural alternative school is a school operated by an institution related to migrants, with students enrolled in school A, which is a general high school. In this alternative school, foreign (multicultural) students gather and receive education, so there is little difficulty in adjusting to the school. When you graduate, you receive a diploma from A school. Even if you are admitted to School A, but do not adapt well, you can go to a consignment-type multicultural alternative school and receive education. There are many foreigners or Koreans who are unaware that such a system exists, so parents need to actively inform the school of this. If it is difficult to explain directly, it is better to seek help from the nearest migrant support agency or Papaya Story Life Legal Visa Support Center. Middle School In Korea, elementary and middle school education is compulsory. Therefore, even a foreigner cannot be declined to enter middle school. However, in the case of mid-immigrant youth, etc., if the documents are not ready when they want to enter or transfer to a domestic middle school, admission or transfer may be refused. Admission is denied because it cannot be recognized that you have the academic background equivalent to middle school. Therefore, it is important to obtain documents such as a certificate of enrollment or graduation certificate proving that they attended school in their home country before coming to Korea. However, there is a way even if you cannot obtain these documents. The ‘Multicultural Preparatory School’ operated by the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education, etc., focuses on Korean language education and Korean culture education before entering a regular school, and promotes academic improvement. Since the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education has designated preparatory schools for some elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, you can attend these schools. Then, six months to a year later, the Office of Education holds an academic background review committee and makes a decision saying, “The student has the academic background to be transferred to the second year of middle school.” Then, the student will be eligible to enter the second year of middle school even if there are no other documents issued by the home country. Elementary School As mentioned earlier, since elementary school education in Korea is compulsory education, admission or transfer admission cannot be refused under any circumstances. As a country that has ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Korea has recognized the right to education for all people, regardless of state or nationality. However, it is a problem that some elementary schools still refuse the transfer of the children of foreigners who are illegally residing. However, in this case, the elementary school in question knew a wrong information or made a wrong decision. Papaya Story actually visited an elementary school that refused the transfer the children of illegal immigrants two years ago. We calmly explained to the school that the measures were wrong and recommended that he ask the multicultural supervisor of the Office of Education. As a result, the student was able to enter the elementary school the next day without any problems. It is a great misfortune that school-age students cannot attend school. In Korea, even a foreign (multicultural) student has a way to attend school, so if you are denied school admission, be sure to inquire at the immigration-related organization or the Papaya Story Life Legal Visa Support Center (031-8001-0211).
