Are you familiar with "Social Entrepreneurship" ?
Social entrepreneurship is the use of the techniques by start up companies and other entrepreneurs to develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. This concept may be applied to a variety of organizations with different sizes, aims, and beliefs.

Seoul YWCA has decided to apply this concept to Y-Teens to solve social problems and create values through changing themselves and the world.


 Sixty high school students(Y-Teens) are taking part in this program and they called themselves "Hero". They implement hypothetic community development and team building project together.


This program is funded by Starbucks Foundation. Seoul YWCA is looking forward to Y-Teens learning matured insight to put more values into society and community, not only oneself.
