   Last Jan. 18, Hanyang University (HYU) held the inauguration ceremony of School for Gifted Children with Seongdong District Office. The official name of the School for Gifted Children is the Seongdong-Hanyang Youngjae School (SHYS). The SHYS is a program that HYU brings up children of low-income families living in Seongdong-gu for education.
   Han Dong-sub, a professor of Journalism and Mass Communication is one of the participants in the SHYS program. "At first, a few professors in HYU gathered to develop the program. Now, more professors are involved in the program. The original purpose of SHYS is to secretly help poor children who could not afford to have private education. After the media covered the SHYS program, many people became aware of the existence of the program. I am concerned that the children were getting hurt,"said Han.
Professors at HYU taught children a variety of subjects such as science, mathematics, music, essay-writing, art and so on. "Since I am a professor of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, I teach Newspaper in Education by reading newspapers with children,"said Han.
Children who are involved in SHYS range from 11 to 13 years old. The number of children is about 190. "Most professors did not have experience teaching children under 10 years of age. After teaching children over 11 years of age, we will decide whether or not to instruct those under 10 years of age. And we cannot teach around 190 children all at once. There are many classes which are composed of 15 children. Then children chose two or three subjects they want,"said Han.
   SHYS is a continued program. Contents of the program are flexible and changeable. And professors have a plan to go camping with children in summer vacation. Han is also going to participate in the camp. "I think volunteers should not quit from it once they have started it. I have never thought about quitting volunteer work. I want continue volunteering,"said Han.
Before becoming a professor, he often volunteered to help others. "In the past, I volunteered to teach children of low-income families. I taught a few children in secret. In spite of poor environment, there are always some children trying to study hard. Seeing such students, I feel great after volunteering,"said Han.
He also emphasized the educational goal of HYU, Love in Truth and in Deed. "It is important that the educational goal of the university is related to volunteering. It creates an atmosphere to do volunteer work.?Then he added, ? want Hanyangians to volunteer more. Also, if students participate in the SHYS program, it will be easier to teach. I hope many students at HYU do not volunteer only for grades or money and Hanyangians do volunteer works not in donation but action. Volunteering has the power to enrich one's life."
