INTERNATIONAL CHAIRPERSON'S MESSAGEThe Hwarang Youth Foundation is a volunteer service organization established with the goal to create future leaders for the betterment of society. Qualities of leadership are valued greatly, and how this foundation encourages individuals to achieve their leadership is what truly puts Hwarang above other volunteer service organizations. As our members continue to serve the community, I have observed that many individuals change and find themselves closer to becoming a true leader. Our foundation goes beyond the local communities and has passionate members in Korea, Philippines, Ukraine, Guatemala, El Salvador, Hawaii, Boston, and Northern California. Having the opportunity to connect and reach out to our members globally is a great honor, as I get to witness so many individuals passionately helping each other and to reach the ultimate goal: the betterment of our society.
SUMMIT CHAIRPERSON'S MESSAGEHello, my name is Eileen Lee and as the Summit Chairperson of the Hwarang Youth Foundation for the year 2022~2023, I would like to welcome you all to the Hwarang website. Having been a member of Hwarang for the past four years, I have been able to work hard alongside all my fellow members in helping the community through our various events. Hwarang has always emphasized that it is a volunteer organization dedicated to helping the youth find their leadership through various acts of volunteering. When I first joined Hwarang, I was incredibly introverted and had a lot of trouble with speaking out in front of many people. However, throughout my years in this volunteer organization, I have been able to grow my leadership skills and my confidence. I am honored to now be able to serve as this year’s Summit Chairperson in continuously giving back to our community.
