The Uijeongbu City Youth Foundation held an inauguration ceremony for the 2nd Chairman Gyeong Gyu-gwan and a kick-off ceremony with the goal of becoming a “specialized youth organization that grows together and shares happiness” in celebration of the New Year 2023.
Chairman Gyeong Gyu-gwan, who will be inaugurated as the second Chairman, is evaluated as the right person to lead the Uijeongbu City Youth Foundation as he has extensive experience in youth-related research and field activities while serving as principal of Goyang High School and Uijeongbu Technical High School.
In his inaugural address, Chairman Gyeong said, “Based on my experience as an educator, our youth, who are the leaders of the future industrial society, can use their talents to grow healthy as valuable resources that lead the 4th industrial society with creative and global capabilities. I will do my best to make it happen.”
In addition, through the kick-off ceremony, the Uijeongbu City Youth Foundation established four major management strategies: human rights management that values human dignity and value, ethical management that fulfills social responsibilities, talent management with global capabilities based on future industries, and youth development that is respected in harmony and consideration. As a policy, he asked officials of the foundation to take one step closer to youth in 2023.
The Uijeongbu City Youth Foundation was established in January 2016 to lay the foundation for youth policies and operate and manage youth facilities efficiently and systematically. Currently, the foundation operates a youth training center, a youth cultural center, and a youth counseling and welfare center.
