SAN FRANCISCO — The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California recently named Matt Okada as its new director of programs. Prior to being selected, Okada served as the center’s program coordinator for the past two years, focusing on new program development and managing the department’s computer system and technology.
“I’m excited for this amazing opportunity to serve as the director of programs for the JCCCNC. Working at the center has given me the opportunity to learn about San Francisco’s Japantown and its rich history, while contributing toward providing programs to the many people around the community,” said Okada.
Okada grew up in Selma, near Fresno, Calif., and earned his undergraduate degree from California State University, Fresno, in recreation administration with an emphasis in community recreation and youth services.
