Young People Volunteer in Difficult Jobs in DPRK
Pyongyang, May 6 (KCNA) -- Many young people are volunteering in difficult jobs to make contribution to the building of a thriving nation in the DPRK.

More than 150 000 youngsters volunteered to work in collieries, mines and farms in 2001, including graduates of the then Unha Higher Middle School in Yangdok County, South Phyongan Province.

When visiting the Unhung Cooperative Farm in Taechon County in July, Juche 97 (2008), leader Kim Jong Il met a girl who volunteered for the farm from Pyongyang to praise her patriotic deed.

He said young people in other countries try hard for citizenship of their capital cities but Korean youth are volunteering for farms, mines and virgin lands from the capital city of Pyongyang, stressing that it is the true looks of the young Korean people who have always been loyal to the party and the revolution.

The number of young volunteers is on the increase in the DPRK as the days go by.

Some of the graduates from Kim Jong Suk University of Education volunteered for the northern railway reconstruction project and a brother-and-sister eightsome for the Ryongyang Mine after their graduation from Pyongyang Munsin Middle School.

After the promulgation of the law on enforcement of universal 12-year compulsory education system, many graduates from universities of education and teacher training colleges volunteered to be teachers of those schools on frontline islands and in mountainous villages.

On March 31, 11 graduates from a university of education and a teacher training college in South Hwanghae Province volunteered for island schools.

Marshal Kim Jong Un expressed his conviction that the prosperity of the country will be brought earlier by devoted efforts of the young people.
