Philadelphia Chapter President
On behalf of the Mother Members and families of the Phenomenal Philadelphia Chapter of Jack and Jill of America Incorporated, I welcome you to the Chapter's official website!
Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated was founded January 24, 1938 here in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Over eighty years ago, one mother conceived an idea and championed her friend Marion Stubbs Thomas to give it life. The idea was to bring their children together for the purpose of exposing them to social, cultural, educational, and spiritual activities. Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated has continued to grow and evolve as an organization. The organization is comprised of Mothers with children ages 2 to 19, dedicated to nurturing future African American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty. Through the organizations aims and objectives, it also committed to seek for all children the same advantages that we desire for our own children.
As the founding chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc, the Philadelphia chapter is committed to nurturing our future leaders through community service, legislative advocacy, outstanding chapter programming and philanthropic giving.
