A WARM WELCOME
From the Baltimore Chapter
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.
The objectives of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated are to “create a medium of contact for children which will stimulate growth and development and provide children constructive educational, cultural, civic, health, recreational and social programs.” Since 1938, the organization continues on, dedicating its resources to improving the quality of life, particularly for all African-American children.
Our Baltimore Chapter delivers and focuses on initiatives that will equip our members and youth with the power to make a difference in communities and in the lives of children around the country.

A Message from our Chapter President
Welcome to the 2020-2021 Program Year! As the Baltimore Chapter enters into our 75th year, I am pleased to serve alongside you as we work to enhance the lives of our children and the children within our community.
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’s 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.
Jack and Jill brings meaningful educational events to its children to connect them with new passions, to help them find their inner leaders and to encourage a lifetime of financial literacy, personal development and community stewardship.
HEALTH + SELF-CARE DEVELOPMENT
Throughout the year, the children of Jack and Jill explore conditions critically impacting African American health – e.g. heart disease, sickle cell anemia and stroke – and develop strong tools for effective prevention and self-care.
