Volunteer at the Jaisohn Center

We believe that it is important to cultivate future community leaders as early as possible, so we offer opportunities for junior and senior high school students to volunteer in the community, learn and take part in civic engagement, learn about Korean culture and history as well as have access to Career Mentoring and unique course programming.

Jaisohn Youth Drum Group consists of middle-upper school students who meet once a week to learn Korean Traditional drumming “Modeum Buk” and various Korean percussion instruments.  The goal is to expose our youth to Korean culture in an effort help them develop a stronger sense of dual identity as well as provide opportunity for them to perform and share what they have learned with the larger community.  There is a nominal monthly fee for the lessons and the classes meet on Thursdays at 5:30p.m. at Jaisohn Philadelphia location at 6705 Old York Road, Philadelphia, PA 19126.
