About KASM


A PREEMINENT ORGANIZATION

renowned for developing Korean leaders.

kasm was founded to IMPROVE the future of the korean peninsula

KASM is a 501(c)(3) organization tirelessly working to empower leaders on the Korean Peninsula. Our organization's volunteers and members are accomplished in the fields of finance, international economics, law, and social activism. We value collaboration, confidence, and personal growth.

Mission: direction, empowerment, and support FOR NORTH KOrean defectors and south koreans with global mindsets.

KASM's mission offers a distinct approach to leadership and education. The Korean American Sharing Movement cultivates leadership and understanding for the Korean Peninsula. Our organization fulfills an important need: the development of human capacity. Through developing leaders who are connected with an engaged network, we contribute to a peaceful and mutually-beneficial reconciliation of the two Koreas. 

The WLP program became a turning point in my career goals. After exchanging my thoughts with KASM members and listening to others’ reflections, I decided to change my major. Four years later, I am now a lawyer!
