The program is being held online and consists of the following six topics: counseling and guidance on youth issues, understanding multiculture and multicultural families, strengthening unification education, democratic education and ethics, and strengthening expertise in digital age classes. The topic of "Counseling and Guidance on Youth Issues" treats interpersonal relationships, personality and poor learning, and the principles and techniques of parental counseling. In addition, the special lecture on "strengthening unification education" includes such as changes and characteristics of the inter-Korean division, the status of unification education, understanding of North Korean youth, and the increase and education of North Korean defectors.
