Ukraine: Second Generation Start Global Future Leadership Training

Prepared by FFWPU Ukraine

Second-generation youth entering Ukraine’s Global Future Leadership program attended a kick-off workshop from August 23 to 25 before starting a 40-day fundraising condition.

Having 20-years’ experience of conducting the New World Educational Team, a one-year program for young first-generation members, the Ukrainian members decided to open a similar one-year educational program for the second generation. They call this program Global Future Leadership (GFL). Starting next year, Ukrainian second-generation young people will enter GFL after they graduate from high school.

This year, 12 applications came from second-generation young people from Korea, Japan, Africa and Belarus. Nine of them took part in the kick-off workshop in Kiev, and the other three attended a similar program in Korea. The three-day workshop focused on fundraising as a preparation for a 40-day condition in Europe.

One of the participants wrote the following reflection: “Hoon Dok Hwe at the workshop was so precious for me. Until now, I was just reading, but here we had a chance to deeply discuss the contents. Through these three days, I realized why we need to do Hoon Dok Hwe.

“In addition, I understood why I need to do fundraising. Up to now, I thought fundraising is just selling something. Now I realized that fundraising is the way for me to change myself. And, as we heard in the lectures, it is important not to give up. I usually give up even before starting something. So I want to change this point and be reborn. I am still scared about fundraising, but I want to do my best.”Second-generation youth entering Ukraine’s Global Future Leadership program attended a kick-off workshop from August 23 to 25 before starting a 40-day fundraising condition.
