Hwarang Silcon Valley Districts composes with 3 chapters which is Cupertino, San Jose, and Saratoga, to achieve Hwarang’s mission statement. Each member of our district is dedicated to serve his or her community, while bonding with one another, strengthening our Korean American identity. We want to continue this tradition for many more years to come.
Even though we are a relatively new district, as it was started in 2018, we have accomplished many goals since then. For example, our medical committee helps teachers at Organization for Special Needs Families by individually caring for each person with special needs. Collaborating with K-Group, the IT committee has opened free coding classes for elementary and middle school students to learn about Java, Scratch, and hamster robot. Moreover, the business committee helped the Deer Hollow Farm by doing tasks like cleaning cages and feeding animals, and toured famous Silicon Valley companies to inspire members. In addition, the art committee made custom Christmas and thank you cards to help fundraise money for future events. Finally, the media committee utilizes social media and writes articles to show your achievements.
Projects like these might seem small in the short term, but they leave a lasting beneficial impact on our community in the long term, empowering others to participate by volunteering and helping others. Hwarang Silicon Valley has just started and I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish next! Go Hwarang!
