Who We Are
Jack and Jill of America, Inc. is a private membership organization of mothers with children ages 2-19, dedicated to nurturing future African-American change-makers through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and community involvement.
From museum talks and drum workshops to artistic performances and Black History Month events, Jack and Jill children are exposed to some of the historical building blocks of complex and evolving relationships between people, communities and culture.
If you pick up your phone and are greeted by a young voice, it may be that of a Jack and Jill'er volunteering for a get-out-the-vote drive. Service-learning starts early in Jack and Jill, through experiences designed to help the children identify and address issues of public concern.
Children involved in Jack and Jill often develop lifelong friendships by doing what kids do best - playing. Pool parties, Halloween bashes, teen dances and Jack & Jill family camp are among the venues for sharing values, celebrating differences and building strong bonds.
