Jamaican Civic & Cultural Association of Rockland, Inc. (JAMCCAR)

“Jamaicans and Friends Working Together”

JAMCCAR IS A NON-PROFIT, COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION WITH A MISSION OF FOSTERING GOOD RELATIONS WITH JAMAICAN-AMERICANS AND FRIENDS IN THE METROPOLITAN AREA, WITH THE PURPOSE OF PROMOTING THE CIVIC, ECONOMIC, AND CULTURAL ASPECTS OF THE JAMAICAN, CARIBBEAN, AND PAN-AFRICAN CULTURES.

JAMCCAR has been empowering the economic, political and social development of the Jamaican-American community. The organization promotes unity among Jamaicans, Caribbeans, Africans and other diaspora cultures. The organization gives back to the community by offering opportunities to graduating high school seniors to apply for scholarship awards.

Throughout the years, JAMCCAR, in association with members of African Diaspora Communities, has offered networking and entrepreneurial opportunities to its members and to the broader Rockland community. The organization meets virtually.

JAMCCAR has awarded over 130 scholarships to talented and economically challenged students throughout the years. The  organization salutes all our students on their academic accomplishments, community service and their ability to be role models to our County. Our students strive for excellence and have succeeded in college, even as  many have pursued careers in law, education, medicine and business.
