“HOPEKDIS”, a compound word of ‘Hope and ‘Kids’, started in 2008 as a brand that provides cultural, arts and educational programs to multicultural families in Korea. Our goal is to help children from multicultural families in Korea achieve their dreams and find identity through experiencing various culture and education of their parents’ country. “HOPEKIDS” has successfully hosted various cultural, arts and educational programs for multicultural children in Korea, sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, APEC Cultural Foundation, Seoul Arts Center and Seoul City. To expand our reach to multicultural children in Korea, an organization called “Multi Culture Network” was set up and registered as a non-profit organization under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in June 2012. Since then, “Multi Culture Network” has been active in providing various social communication network services such as educational support, cultural and arts support, cultural exchange and multicultural festival not only for multicultural families but also for immigrated families, foreign workers, North Korean defectors and socially vulnerable groups. “Multi Culture Network” was established with the purpose of social integration based on enhancing cultural understanding. The integration will be achieved by promoting communication and exchanges through cultural sharing projects for multicultural families and culturally underprivileged group. In 2017, we have created an ICT platform in order to achieve providing the equal educational opportunities within Korean society. The ICT platform will connect multicultural families and their mentors, and enable sharing of information to foster talented individuals required for the fourth industrial revolution. The ICT platform of “Multi Culture Network” is a dream sharing study networking system that combines STEAM education to our Visiting Study Mentoring Program, which “Multi Culture Network” has many years of running experiences in. ‘Visiting Study Mentoring Program’ is an educational support program that voluntary mentors visit multicultural families at home and help children with study as well as provide emotional cultivation for these children, whose parents face difficulty on educating their children. Through the ICT platform, Mentee children can apply for customized education anywhere in Kore. Also, the program beneficiary children can grow up as a future of our society through learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics shared on ICT platform. Through the ICT platform, Mentor volunteers can efficiently manage their volunteering activity process including mentoring applications, mentoring activity management and supplementary document for the volunteering certificate. They can also have an access to STEAM-HOPE materials for their classes. A “STEAM-HOPE” is an integrated educational program which helps ICT-based mentoring activities with an aim of improving the basic learning skill needed in the 4th industry. The Dream Sharing Education Project, “HOPE KIDS Visiting Study Mentoring through the Multi Culture Network’s ICT Platform”, is part of the ‘Sharing and Dream’ project sponsored by Samsung and Social Welfare Organization Community Chest of Korea
