Jack & Jill - A Family Organization...

MOTHERS

Mothers who serve as the official members are responsible for keeping their children involved in the organization, planning and chaperoning events, serving as officers and on committees, supporting fund raising and sponsoring community service projects.

 

YOUTH (AGES 2-12)

Youth are engaged in activities planned by mothers that emphasize cultural, social, educational and civic activities, which set the foundations for successful leaders.

FATHERS

Fathers play a vital role in both the nuclear family structure as well as the Jack and Jill family. Fathers’ participation is not mandatory in the organization, however fathers who do participate assist the chapter membership by offering ACT/SAT training, financial literacy seminars and chaperoning teen dances as Pops On Patrol (POP).

 

TEENS (AGES 13-19)

Teens interact in a self-governing environment strategically aligned with the mothers’ program, aimed to develop and nurture leadership skills. Additionally, teens are encouraged to hold elected offices, chair committees and further develop their understanding of the value of community service. Following high school graduation, teens are eligible to participate in the nationwide young alumni group.

ASSOCIATES

Associates are mothers who have successfully completed their tenure as a member. Associates enjoy continued participation without the demands of active membership such as planning activities, attending chapter meetings, etc. An associate can seek lifetime membership depending on her years of service to the organization. Associates sponsor programs such as Mothers Away from Home (MAFH) for alumni Jack and Jill members and the annual Associates Day of Service.

  

... With Something for Everyone

The national theme for 2015-2016 is “The Power to Make a Difference," and the National Executive Board is a team of exceptional mothers who are resolute in developing dynamic and enriching initiatives to address issues related to children’s rights, leadership development, cultural awareness, financial literacy and philanthropic giving.
