San Fernando Valley (SFV) Chapter covers the area of Chatsworth, Northridge, Granada Hills, Van Nuys and other areas in valley. Due to the fact that we are the very first Hwarang Chapter that this successful Organization originated from, we have very special pride, dedication, passion and mission with the mind that we need to work harder than other chapters. Current Fleo and SoCal Chapters were split from SFV Chapter when we got bigger. With that in mind, we have expanded our weekly community volunteer services on our own with other organizations such as St. Joseph Korean Catholic Center, Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) and others. In addition, we participate in Fern Dell Park cleaning, recycling services and chapter meetings as a part of our regular community services. We have a very close friendship among our members and parents and plan to expand our members to serve our community better! We would love to have more members to join our chapter and anyone is always welcomed with our warmest heart and biggest applause!
우리 산페르난도밸리 챕터 (SFV) 는 채스워스, 노스리지, 그라나다힐, 밴나이스와 밸리의 그 이외의 지역의 봉사를 담당합니다. 현제의 성공적인 화랑이 처음 시작했을 당시에 제일 첫번째 챕터가 우리 산페르난도밸리 였으며 우리가 화랑의 시초 내지는 원조라고 할 수 있습니다. 이러한 긍지, 자부심, 열정 및 사명감을 가지고 다른 챕터보다 더 열심히 해야한다는 필요성을 늘 느낍니다. 우리 챕터가 커지면서 현재의 플리오 (Fleo)와 소캘(SoCal) 챕터들이 우리 산패르난도 챕터에서 파생되었습니다. 그러한 마음가짐으로 저희 나름대로 지역 봉사활동을 확장해 나아가고 있습니다. 매주 실행하는 세인트 조셉 성당 센터와 아동 기아 기금과의 꾸준한 봉사활동이 그 좋은 예입니다. 추가로, 펀델공원 청소, 재활용서비스 활동, 챕터미팅등이 우리가 주기적으로 하는 활동중의 일부 입니다. 멤버들 및 부모님들 간의 돈독한 우정관계를 유지하며 화기애애한 분의기에서 지역 봉사활동의 확장에 기여를 합니다. 더 많은 멤버가 우리 챕터에 가입하시기를 기원하며 누구든지 큰 박수와 따뜻한 마음으로 환영합니다!
Hello, my name is Elliot Kim. I decided to be the president of the San Fernando Valley Chapter for my junior year. For me, Hwarang is the organization that introduced community life to me and helped me realize what teamwork is. Although I wasn’t a member of Hwarang for a long time, I could definitely feel the passion from members and cooperation between members who were reaching for the common goal. I was also able to find myself really into the community, and accordingly, it was such a pleasure for me to serve people and to provide help to anyone who needs it. Therefore, as the chapter president, I hope everyone in my chapter can catch the same things that I experienced while I was in Hwarang. And since it’s the first chapter ever established in Hwarang, I feel more responsible for improving the chapter by developing members to whom we seek as a leader and contributor of community. I will always go one step forward to bring everyone together and put the best effort into making a better world.
