Dear friends in Scouting,

As the new president of the Korea Scout Association and on behalf of all the Scouts in Korea, I am pleased to welcome you to our KSA English homepage.

This year, Scouting in Korea celebrates its 90th Anniversary. In this momentous year, we are not only celebrating the history of our association, but working to enrich, grow and invigorate our movement while preparing to celebrate our centenary in 2022. It is a great honor for me to take up the position of President of the Korea Scout Association at this momentous time. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to work together with all the Scouts of Korea, to create a stronger, bigger and brighter Scouting in our own country and to enrich and encourage Scouting in the Asia-Pacific region and all over the world.

To commemorate our 90th Anniversary, we are holding the 13th Korea National Jamboree this summer from the 2nd to the 8th of August, in Gangwon province. For those of you joining us for this celebration, I look forward to meeting you there.

At this exciting time, we are also preparing, with great enthusiasm, our bid to host the 25th World Scout Jamboree and we hope to be able to welcome you to Korea in 2023.

As we look to moving forward into our next century of Scouting, we do so by building on the firm foundations of the original principles of the Scout movement. We are working with these principles to expand our activities to more young people and to make a greater contribution to our society and the world that we share with our fellow Scouts.

The Korea Scout Association is here to be partner to the youth of Korea, and the world, helping them to realize their ambitions and encouraging them as they make those dreams a reality. After all, it is the hopes and dreams of the young people of today, that hold the key to making a bright future in our tomorrow. With this in mind, in my new position as President of the Korea Scout Association, I will strive to do all I can to promote Scouting in Korea, and the world. Also, I offer you my humble gratitude for your endeavors and encourage you in all your Scouting adventures.

Yours in Scouting,
Dr. Jong Han HAHM
Korea Scout Association
