  3. Our Team

SIWA is a non-profit organization, and 100% staffed by volunteers, who are the driving force behind every step of each SIWA social impact project and community event. This special group of SIWA members put the time and effort to plan, organize, and co-ordinate SIWA and our programs. They bring enthusiasm, joy and expertise to the table, so we all can enjoy the memorable moments of the wide variety of activities, whether it’s the social impact project with our partners and collaborators, a coffee morning among SIWA friends, a Korean speaking club session or a special tour.

We are thankful to our volunteers, who continually carry out our mission to create a community through these experiences, friendships and philanthropic projects.
