Useful Web Sites: Socius In Daejeon

A group of conscientious individuals started Socius (Latin for sharing) in 2005 because they saw a lack of resources in languages other than Korean for just about anything. From entertainment and social activities to information for dealing with the government and the legal aspects of living and working in the city, there was no single place to track down information. They felt that while some people with a few years experience and some Korean under their belt might be able to navigate the system, people new to Daejeon or without Korean skills were having a hard time, and they didn’t like this at all. From that desire for a community passing around information and lending a hand came Socius.

Check out their website and get involved.
