NKSC runs programs that support the personal and professional development of defectors. Based on the firm belief that North Koreans themselves play a crucial role in realizing prosperity and peace on a unified peninsula, NKSC works to ensure that defectors thrive in their new lives.

In 2016, NKSC U.S. will launch a new leadership and exchange program for young defectors, providing an international capacity-building program based in the US.
