It always seems impossible until it's done.
At JSCA, we all share a common goal: To create and nurture partnerships between citizens in Jacksonville and those in our eight Sister Cities:
Bahia Blanca, Argentina
Changwon City, South Korea
Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, South Africa
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Jacksonville has three "Friendship City" relationships, which are partnerships that are less formal and more limited in scope:
JSCA sponsors a variety of business, cultural, educational, and professional exchanges with its twinned cities.
Our organization is a member of Sister Cities International, whose mission is to “promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, & cooperation – one individual, one community at a time.” Our motto is "Peace Through People" and we strive to achieve this daily.
We warmly invite you to join our journey to promote peace through citizen diplomacy — and make new friends — by becoming part of our global family at JSCA.
