Because of the worldwide pandemic, the Asia Leadership Foundation (ALF) began utilizing webinars to continue their work of training leaders of integrity in South Korea and the Korean diaspora. One type of training conducted by ALF is in Metacognition. These courses allow participants to help realize their identities, identify what fulfills them, and confirm the meaning of their existence. In 2023, ALF will help refugees who struggle to adapt to South Korean society by pairing them with a coach.
