In August of 2021, the San Diego Chapter was founded with 6 members. At the time we were the newest and smallest chapter and being down south of LA, we are far from other chapter locations and hq. Despite this, our chapter has grown to 13 people in 2022-2023 and under the supervision of chapter president David Han, our work has allowed Hwarang to serve areas in southern California and we are optimistic that with this strong foundation, our chapter will proudly represent Hwarang in the San Diego area and grow at the same time. The work that we do in the community includes recycling, local park and beach cleanups, homeless work and donations, and volunteering at Hwarang events. Guided by the five loves of Hwarang, the San Diego chapter hopes to grow in both members and character while proudly representing Hwarang in the San Diego area.
