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 endeavors 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
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
