ABSTRACT

Background & Purpose: The purpose of this study is to find the direction of youth activities based on a survey on youth activities in Gyeonggi Province. Methodology/Approach: To this end, a survey was conducted on 2153 adolescents about the degree and level of their participation in activities. Findings/Conclusions: The results are as follow. First, there was a difference according to age in the level of youth participation in youth activities, and the channels to know youth facilities were through friends and seniors and juniors, and youth club activities, volunteer activities, and general activities were highly engaged. Second, the regrets of youth facilities were lack of diversity in programs, lack of programs that can represent the region, and lack of publicity. Third, it was found that participation in youth activities was recognized as meaningful and important. Fourth, the activities that the region wanted to provide were highly demanding for activities that enhance psychological self-esteem, activities that enjoy comfortable rest and leisure, and volunteer activities for the socially disadvantaged. Fifth, satisfaction expectations for the activity areas provided by youth facilities were different according to gender, age, and region. Sixth, as facilities that were desired to be built in the region, the need for career experience-oriented facilities and sports specialized facilities was most demanded. Seventh, it was possible to perform various activities non-face-to-face, but showed difficulties in how to handle necessary equipment and develop non-face-to-face activities. In addition, youths in northern Gyeonggi and southern Gyeonggi showed differences in the facilities they wanted to be built in the region. Implications: As a result of this, Gyeonggi-do youth's participation in activities and direction of youth activities were suggested.
