“It’s not only about Cantonese but also
about our culture and history”
Albert Chin, Chairman
WHO WE ARE
The Chinese Community Center of New Jersey (CCCNJ) Incorporated began in the late 1960’s, and was incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit cultural organization. CCCNJ’s purpose is to teach Chinese language (mainly Cantonese) and culture, as well as to serve as a source of social activity for its members. CCCNJ has a membership of over 170 families, most of whom are Chinese or of Chinese descent. All are welcome.
