At Osan Air Base, there are numerous community outreach programs which take place beyond the gates of Osan. Each program is a great volunteer opportunity for all of Team Osan. Airmen, Soldiers and civilians alike are already spending hundreds of hours of their off-duty time to enrich and improve the lives of South Koreans.
There are English conversation and instruction type classes going on in neighboring churches, elementary schools, high schools and universities, as well as between the ROK and U.S. Airmen. Other groups visit neighboring orphanages, a home for the impoverished elderly, pick-up trash on hiking trails, while others make a four-hour roundtrip journey to help build a church on the top of a mountain.
For more information about the following programs taking place beyond the gates, contact the program point of contact. To register as a volunteer and find out how you can get involved in your community on Osan Air Base and beyond, call the base volunteer coordinator at the Airmen and Family Readiness Center, 784-5440.
