‘SAM’ is a name used to refer to a university student education volunteer who works at H-JUMP SCHOOL, which is a compound word of scholarship student and teacher.

Hyundai Motors Group Education Volunteer Corps H-JUMP SCHOOL SAMs are a teacher for youths who need educational opportunities, who empathize with the students, cultivate a sense of community for the community, including youths who study together, and solve problems that can arise between activities.
The qualities most required during the program are the sincerity and passion to engage in activities enthusiastically for 10 months and the patience and leadership to teach and understand and wait for youths who do not like to study, sincerely thinking about them as brothers and sisters.
No. Even if you don’t have prior education volunteer experience, you can apply if you have a strong will and passion to study with the youth. However, preferences can be given to the selection based on one’s experiences with the youth and what one has felt through education volunteering.
During the selection period, applicants who have successfully applied will be screened for documents, and interviews will be conducted for successful applicants.
Successful candidates who have passed the interview are classified as the primary candidates for the final selection, and only those successful candidates who have attended the orientation and received the basic training as a SAM can be selected and put into education volunteer program.
The youths who need educational opportunities are attending the learning centers you will apply for. In order to select the best match for both the SAMs and the youths depending on subject and the students’ needs, representatives of each learning center and the H-JUMP SCHOOL Secretariat office go through in-depth discussions to select the right match of the SAMs and the youths who will be together for 10 months.
In the SAM application form, the days and times of activity for each learning center are specified. When applying, be sure to check the contents, and select a learning center where you can be active and fill in the application form. When selected, you will be able to work on the day and time of your will.
The Hyundai Motors Group Education Volunteer Corps H-JUMP SCHOOL is a one-year program. If a teacher who promised two semester activity fail to keep one’s promise, from a youth’s perspective, does it not only interfere with the student’s learning but also can hurt them emotionally. We hope to work with those who value their commitment to the promises with the youth.
The once assigned centers cannot be changed. It is a principle to stay in the same learning center for 10 months because it is important to establish a lasting relationship with the connected youth. However, depending on the circumstances of the learning center and the youth, the youth may be re-matched.
