Society seems to want more people with great leadership qualities and one club outside campus is taking the initiative in raising such leaders. YLC students are united together by youth and passion to become leaders of the future.
YLC is a group of university students seeking to develop their visions on issues related to the economy. It is sponsored by the Federation of Korean Industries.
YLC was established in 2002 and is heading toward its fourth year. It recruits new students twice a year, and has produced more than 700 members.
Kim Jae-won (English Lang. & Lit., 2), leader of the group "Wisdom,"said students also form academic groups to study English, Chinese, and even computer skills. "YLC is like a set of different presents. You can experience all the characteristics and merits of other clubs."
There are four major activities held by YLC. First is the mandatory forum that is provided for newcomers. Second is the voluntarily-participating forum, which is an academic meeting run directly by students. In addition, during the vacation, YLC members go on camp training. Besides these official activities, YLC holds various events such as Pre-YLC program for the new members, and lectures which are also open to nonmember students.
Choi Yoon-hee (International Studies, 3) said, "I met numerous people who not only live passionate lives themselves but make my life passionate as well. I have learned to love and fully enjoy my youth through YLC."
The Ewha Voice is starting a regular column to profile successful student-run clubs in various fields. This month's column will feature the Young Leader's Club (YLC).
