EARLY YEARS PROGRAM
English learning in a loving environment
Open Arms provides a fun and safe space for children to learn English. Children receive supportive and positive learning experiences through play and engaging activities. The key concepts involve communication and creative expression through verbal and non-verbal messages. We hope that through our work, kids are able to express personal choices and make individualized decisions.
Our volunteers are those who love working together with kids to provide each child with a fun and active English learning session. Volunteers need plenty of energy and enthusiasm, and enjoy having fun with children. They help with English, play games, and participate in a variety of activities together.

“My name is Samantha and I started volunteering with Open Arms since 2018. I will never forget my first experience volunteering at one of the welfare homes that Open Arms sponsors. The kids looked at us like we were aliens but as soon as we started the program, their curious faces turned into bright smiles. We danced to songs, made fun crafts, read books together, and much more. Saying goodbye to the kids at the end of the day is always hard, but knowing that we are able to see them again the next week makes the sadness temporary. While some might see this as a way to just play with kids and teach them English, it goes beyond much deeper. Open Arms is contributing to the developmental growth of these children physically and more importantly emotionally. I highly recommend volunteering at Open Arms if you are in Seoul and want to volunteer at an amazing organization with an amazing purpose.”
