IYF raises people with joyful hearts.

Everyone wants true happiness in life. Most people think that certain conditions must be met in order to be happy, but they must first discover where happiness is derived from.

With IYF, you will encounter and learn about the world of the heart. A strong mindset that is capable of overcoming any form of difficulty is created when one overcomes one’s limits. As you participate in IYF programs, before you realize it, your heart will become stronger and will enjoy lasting happiness.Also, you will be able to become a mentor who can pass on happiness to others.

In the future, the youth who have gained sound, bright hearts through IYF will lead the world. I believe that everywhere they venture, there will be a scent of happiness.

– Chairman of IYF, Moon Taek Park

IYF is a light that shines on the hearts of youth

Young people try to decorate their lives with style and individuality; however, this cannot give true freedom or peace.
Today’s youth have long wandered from the values and social responsibilities needed to guide the next generation —they are our hope and our future. IYF shares their worries and difficulties and supports their endeavours and passion.

IYF is a bright, vibrant festival for the youth of tomorrow.
There is sharing and volunteering in IYF, because its members can sacrifice for others and are freed from their own small world. IYF is a cradle of global leadership that nurtures strong hearts in all people
and lifts them up to discover their dreams.

Just as a star gleams through the darkness, the youth of IYF will become bright stars that shine throughout the world.

– IYF Founder, Ock Soo Park

There is hope for the world because of you

Thirteen years ago, I saw a photo exhibition while passing by the Seoul Newspaper Hall. It was an exhibition of IYF students work in Africa, South America, Asia, and various other countries. There were several students there and when I asked them what the purpose of this event was, they replied, “I used to be full of hatred, and could not trust anyone, but I have changed now.” “I used to be afraid, could not speak in front of people, and closed the door of my heart. I am not that way anymore.” I saw how young people who had gone to volunteer had changed.

I have been an educator for over 40 years, and so I strongly believe that happiness can be achieved in this world simply by giving proper education to the youth. After meeting with the youth of IYF, I discovered that these youths were happy amidst a very complicated world.

I believe there is hope for this world because of you. If you continue to live with this heart, hope will come upon this world and it shall bring forth a world overflowing with love.

– Former Prime Minister, Su Seong Lee
