Our National Theme is....
"​The Power to Make a Difference
We Can Do More"

Mission Statement

"Jack and Jill of America, Inc. is a membership organization of mothers with children ages 2-19, dedicated to nurturing future African-American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty."


Chapter programs are primarily centered around leadership development, awareness of cultural heritage and community service.  The philosophy we embrace is one of holistic enrichment of our youth and, by extension, our communities.

Chapter Programming is the “heart” of the organization. It is the way that we “create a medium of contact for children that stimulates growth and development.” The Chapters’ programming requires that at least one activity (in each grade group) be accomplished centered on the National Program Thrusts under EDUCATION, CULTURAL, CIVIC, SOCIAL/RECREATIONAL, and HEALTH.


One of the hallmarks of Jack and Jill is its emphasis on youth development with our youth leadership programs. Whether it is through skill enhancement, financial literacy or volunteer opportunities, this organization has become a national model for creating effective programs to develop future leaders who possess the skills to be world leaders.
