The Korean Children's Union (Young Pioneer Corps, Chosŏn'gŭl: 조선소년단; Hancha: 朝鮮少年團) is the precursor to the Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League of North Korea contributing to North Korean youth movement and pioneer movement. It is for children aged nine to fifteen and is a political organisation linked to the Workers' Party of Korea. The organization is operating in elementary and secondary schools nationwide. It teaches children about the Juche Idea, and the ideologies behind the North Korean system. Youth above age 15 may join the Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League.
New children usually get admitted in the corps on an important public holiday such as the Day of the Sun, the Military Foundation Day, or the Day of the Foundation of the Republic. It is considered an important occasion in a child's life.
