About Our Facilities
Our facility was built in two phases. The first phase was completed in May of 1986 and houses our administrative offices, conference rooms and tenant offices on the second floor, and the multi-purpose Issei Memorial Hall which is adjacent to a commercial kitchen and dish-wash area. The second phase includes a gymnasium, exhibit hall, art room and archive room, and was completed in 1990.
The JCCCNC also provides affordable office space to non-profit organizations in the community, enabling local, non-profit groups to easily provide services in Japantown. See a list of current tenants below.
The Issei Memorial Hall is a multi-purpose space and can be converted for recreational and community programs for all age groups. There is also an exhibition area to display cultural and historical work by local and visiting artists.
The second floor houses a gymnasium/community hall with bleacher seating for 150 people and a full-size high school regulation basketball court. The hall is acoustically designed to accomodate all types of events, including performing arts, exhibitions, lectures and social meetings. The second floor also houses JCCCNC offices and two conference rooms. These rooms have a collapsible dividing wall that allows the two rooms to be opened up into a larger space.
JCYC supports the needs of the diverse, multicultural population of children, youth and families throughout San Francisco by providing a comprehensive continuum of care; empowering young people to realize their full potential; providing leadership in collaborative efforts; and supporting the cultural, educational, recreational, and vocational needs of children and youth.
