Hope for the future


I have been very fortunate in that over time I have learned to bridge the two worlds for myself. However, having had a forum in which I can share and relate my experiences and those of others similar to me while growing up would have been helpful.

The C3 Society works to help bridge the Korean immigrant and Canadian society and offers guidance to the 1.5 and 2nd generations. Steve Kim, Chair and Co-founder of C3 Society, explains that their conferences, workshops and forums offer many opportunities and aid for the 1.5 generation and the 2nd generation children and youth to link their heritage and their ¡°new¡± worlds together.

By connecting with others like themselves, Steve Kim hopes that the younger generations will have the help that he and his generation did not have while growing up. A dialogue through institutions like C3 Society in which the experiences are examined and explored seems vital to the well-being of the future 1.5 generations.IWC Replica (The end)
