Since Jack and Jill was founded in 1938 it has eveolved into a strong national organization as a result of strong programming. Our Founder Marion Stubbs Thomas had a simple idea of bringing together children in social and cultural relationships and this idea avalanched into a strong national organization. Our story of growth is one of amity and felicity. As new members are welcomed and new chapters are formed, the aims and details of Jack and Jill have strengthened, always with our children and civic service as the focal points.

Programmatic Goals

Chapter programs are primarily centered around leadership development, awarness of cultural heritage, and community service. To these ends, we have established mulit-faceted initiative such as STE'A'M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math), the Healthy Living Inititative (centered on lifestyle improvements and healthy development) and various special projects with our national and local partners. The philosophy we embrace is one of holistic enrichment of our youth, and by extension, our communities. Our national theme is "Power and Potential: Parents Empowering Youth."
