In South Korea, the youth unemployment rate is double the national average.
Many young Koreans find it difficult to find a job after they graduate.
So Yoo Ran, a 24-year-old college graduate, for example, could not keep a full-time job after leaving college.
South Korea's Youth Union is stepping in to help, with a bank initiative aimed at helping to reduce youth unemployment.
"Up until June, I was still looking for a job, but I couldn’t find one I liked. So I started to volunteer at that Youth Solidarity Bank, in a sense to hang out. But now I get paid, doing something I love to do," So told Al Jazeera.
