How you help There are many ways to volunteer at the ESGVJCC! Volunteers are truly the foundation of our community and without their support and dedication to the organization, we would be truly lost.
About us Eijiro Machida, a first generation Japanese in America, dreamed of a bridge that would keep his children and their children connected to the culture and traditions of their ancestral birthplace. To build this bridge, he offered a gift of his land in 1936. This bridge became the ESGVJCC. Today, the ESGVJCC bridges culture, family, and community; and stands as a vibrant Japanese American regional cultural and community organization that spans across the greater Los Angeles County, the Inland Empire and Orange County. It is home to over 25 cultural, educational, artistic, recreational and social programs serving over 1,000 families.
