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!
Hello! My name is Kevin Ryu. Welcome to the SFV page! SFV is a chapter based around the Northridge/Granada Hills area. Our chapter is one of the smaller chapters out there, but that doesn’t affect us from working hard. Our members are all hard workers, and passionate about helping the Korean-American community. We hope to add to our chapter with younger members, who will be able to provide for the community for many years. Our chapter events include sandwich packing for the homeless in our area, cleaning up Fern Dell Park, and occasionally helping out at the Children’s Hunger Fund in Sylmar. Our focus for this chapter right now is mainly on hunger and being able to feed them. However, we at the SFV chapter believe Hwarang is a chance to volunteer also in something you care about, so we are open to any suggestions on more events we can go to on a regular basis. SFV is a chapter that is growing, and we are certain that the work we do can make a huge difference both in the lives of the people we help and our own. Hwarang is an experience that is rarely found in other places. Hwarang means a lot to us, and we hope it can mean a lot to you too.
