One of the objectives of the Japanese American Service Committee is to help keep alive the cultural heritage of Japanese Americans. We do this by:
- maintaining an archive of Japanese American life in Chicago
- observing and celebrating significant cultural and historical events
- holding special activities for seniors, adults, youth, children and families
- teaching classes such as flower arranging, cooking, language, art, and more
- maintaining close ties with other Japanese American and Asian organizations, including hosting many at our facility.
We also provide opportunities for the Japanese American community and those interested in Japanese American culture to come together and socialize.
