The Japanese Community Youth Council is a mission driven organization that has been providing youth development since 1970. Today it provides a continuum of opportunities that impact over 6000 young people between the ages of 2 and 25 annually.
JCYC’s mission is to cultivate and enrich the lives of children and youth from diverse, multi-cultural communities throughout San Francisco and beyond.
On the path to accomplishing their dreams, our children and youth will contribute to tomorrow’s generations, and be healthy and productive members of our community.
Community: We foster a collective desire and passion to support the healthy development of children and youth.
Diversity: We respect and embrace the differences that make all members of our society unique.
Integrity: We conduct ourselves in a manner that is worthy of the trust and confidence placed in us by the communities we serve.
Cooperation: We build strong partnerships to ensure we have the greatest impact on children and youth possible.
Compassion: We see in a child that which they cannot see in themselves.
Vision: Like a child, we look ahead with imagination and without limits.
