In 1998, a group of young professionals sharing a common desire to serve the community and perpetuate the Filipino Culture joined forces to establish an organization that would encourage leadership and professional development for individuals between the ages of 21 to 39. The Honolulu Filipino Junior Chamber of Commerce (Filipino Jaycees) was founded under the sponsorship of the Hawaii State Jaycees.
The Honolulu Filipino Junior Chamber of Commerce (HFJCC) is a non-profit organization. It is affiliated with the International, National and State Jaycees. Since its creation, HFJCC has developed relationships with the FilCom Center and the Filipino Chamber of Commerce (FCCH) and has provided support to various community events, including: Annual L&L Community; Christmas Lunch; Coordination of the AT&T FilCom Parade; The Special Olympics; Hawaii Food Bank; Self-Help Housing & MADD.
The HFJCC has grown to include participants from diverse professional, educational and cultural backgrounds. The HFJCC is dedicated to giving back to the community while supporting the personal and professional development of its members. Former members include: Judge Rey Graulty, Supreme Court Justice Mario Ramil, Dr. Fort Elizaga, and FilCom President/Entrepreneur Roland Casamina.
