Give

Introduction

In the summer of 2016, GIVE was created as a branch of Hwarang Youth Leadership by Heidi Jung, the first president of GIVE.

GIVE is based in Koreatown, Los Angeles, CA, and the name is an acronym for “Get Involved, Value Everyone.” Our chapter aims to embrace each and every member, and puts emphasis on the value of leadership and hard work. As of 2019, we have over 20 active members. GIVE strives to embrace not only volunteer activities, but also friendship as well as both mental and physical growth.

GIVE’s age range is more diverse and has a lower average age than most other groups in Hwarang, this being one of our many attributes. Due to this, GIVE’s biggest goal is to create and provide as many opportunities as possible for all of our members to gain life experiences, regardless of age. We utilize mentor programs and care for each member, so that GIVE can continue to thrive under good leadership, and so that GIVE can maintain the same energy and involvement that the founding members strived for. 

Another major characteristic of our chapter is that GIVE is known for being the most active chapter within Hwarang, and constantly serves as a reliable foundation for  this club. As a result of our efforts, we received the Best Club Award in 2019. GIVE’s members make an effort to approach any and all events with enthusiasm and an open mind. Aside from regular Hwarang events, our members are also involved in a number of Hwarang committees, including the IT committee, Humanities committee, and the performance committee, which gives our members the opportunity to use their talents and find their passions. Many GIVE members continue to show their leadership by serving on Summit’s Board of Directors. 

As Hwarang’s representatives of Koreatown, we confidently showcase our Korean American identity and sense of community. We hope to continue to GIVE more to the community, and we hope that you all will GIVE love to us as well. Please continue to show your affection and interest, and please support us as we continue to grow and develop. Thank you. 

GIVE는 화랑 청소년 재단의 한 챕터로 로스 앤젤레스 캘리포니아 코리아 타운을 기반으로 하여 2016년 여름, 첫번째 회장인 하이디 정에 의해서 설립되었습니다. 

‘Get Involved, Value Everyone’ 의 약자로 이름 지어진  ‘GIVE’는 모든 이를 존중하며 모든 이와 협력하자는 의미를 내포하고 있으며 2019년 현재, 20명 이상의 멤버들이 적극적인 사회 봉사 활동과 함께 상호간에 우정을 나누며, 서로의 인격적인 성장을 격려하고 있습니다.

GIVE의 특징으로는 먼저, 챕터 구성원의 평균 연령대가 화랑의 다른 챕터보다  어리면서도 다양하며 넓은 연령대의 멤버를 구성되어 있다는 것입니다. 이로인하여 GIVE는 모든 멤버가 나이와 관계없이 다양한 경험을 통하여 꿈을 성취할 수 있는 많은 기회를 제공하는데 주력하고 있습니다. 우리는 각 멤버에 대한 관심과 배려를 가지고 선 후배간의 멘토 프로그램을 통하여, GIVE의 창립 멤버들이 한 마음으로 헌신했던 것과 같이 GIVE의 청소년들이 좋은 리더쉽 아래 꿈을 향한 지속적인 성장을 할 수 있도록 매진할것입니다.

GIVE의 또 다른 특징은 GIVE가 화랑 내에서 중추 역할을 하는 가장 활동적인 챕터로 알려져 있다는 것입니다. 그 결과 2019년 베스트 클럽상을 받기도 한 GIVE는 모든 멤버들이 열린 마음으로 열정을 가지고 정기적인 화랑 봉사 활동과 이벤트 이외에도 IT 커미티,Humanities 커미티, 및 Performance 커미티 등 여러 화랑 커미티에 참여하며 자신의 적성을 개발하고, 자신의 재능을 사회에 환원하는데 사용되고 있습니다. 뿐만 아니라 GIVE에서 성장한 멤버들은 계속해서 화랑 Summit에서도 활동하며 그들의 리더십의 지경을 넓혀 나가고 있습니다. 

화랑의 코리아타운 대표로서 Korean American의 정체성과 공동체 의식을 자랑하는 

GIVE는 우리가 가진 재능과 열정을 우리가 속한 이 지역 사회에 아낌없이 나누어 줄것입니다. 여러분들도 아낌없는 사랑을 GIVE에게 주시기 바랍니다. 앞으로도 계속 애정과 관심을 부탁드리며, 저희가 성장하고 발전하는 만큼 많이 응원해 주시길 바랍니다. 감사합니다.

Shua Kang

President

Hi, My name is Shua Kang. I am a senior at Downtown Magnet High School, and I am the president of GIVE. I have been a member of Hwarang for approximately 3 years. Through my Hwarang experiences and from former GIVE members and leaders, I have been able to learn the value of finding my passions and of cultivating my interests. GIVE is filled with bright, hard working, and organized students who share a   love of culture, embracing both Korean and American sides, as well as a love of community, striving to better Los Angeles one step at a time. As both a member and now as the president of GIVE, I am proud to introduce you to our chapter and I am eager to see what the future holds.
