LogoChinese American Cultural Association (CACAR) Mission Statement

The Chinese American Cultural Association of Rockland, Inc., (CACAR), is a non-profit, non-political, cultural organization established in 1997 to promote and advance the diverse cultural heritage of the Chinese community and community at large in Rockland County and its surrounding communities. We provide a learning center, The Rockland Chinese School, for Mandarin Language Learning and cultural enrichment for children and adults who want to learn Mandarin Chinese language and elements of Chinese culture, history and tradition.

With globalization and the growing importance of the Chinese language, in education, business and society, CACAR’s programs increase Mandarin Chinese language skills and cultural awareness for our community’s families and their children. This will enable our children to learn a more diverse, dynamic and rich skill set in language, to enable them to make greater contributions to society.

A further goal of the Chinese American Cultural Association, Inc. is to introduce the essence of Chinese culture to the American public to promote inter-cultural understanding and to build bridges between communities.
