Mentor Program

Together with the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare,G.O.A.’L offers adoptees the unique experience of learning about Korea and the adoptee community through hands-on experience with one of the only adoptee-run organizations in the world. Mentors will be expected to take an active role in day-to-day work as well as the long-term projects of the organization.

Mentors work primarily from the G.O.A.’L office and will assist and support the various departments of G.O.A.’L including (but not limited to):

  • Birth family search assistance
  • Coordinate volunteer efforts
  • F-4 visa & Dual Citizenship application assistance
  • Event coordination
  • Membership administration
  • Writing and sending newsletters
  • Promotion of organization and programs

Those with various language skills may also assist with interpretation, translation, and/or editing. Regular attendance at meetings, daily logs and monthly progress reports, and a final evaluation of the program is expected.

Applicants preferably have experience in or with an adoption-related field or organization, basic computer and communication skills, and must have a working level of English; multilingual applicants preferred. Korean language skills are also preferred but are not required. Ideal candidates are professional, ambitious, punctual, dedicated, responsible, and have a strong desire to apply this experience to the further development of the adoptee/adoptive community and services.

Mentors work 20 hours a week with a contract for one calendar year. A monthly stipend of 601,200 - 801,600 KRW is provided depending on number of working hours.

As of now, G.O.A.'L does not provide airfare or housing for Mentors. Candidates are responsible for their own transportation and housing. Successful applicants are required to sign a contract upon hire and secure a proper visa before starting (visa sponsorship not available).
