From the President

Welcome to the North Shore Chapter of Jack and Jill of America Website!

On behalf of the mothers of the North Shore Chapter, I would like to thank you for visiting our website.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as President of the North Shore Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. (2018–2020). As President, I plan to encourage our chapter to support our community through service & philanthropic giving while continuing to provide dynamic programming for our children.

Our theme during my tenure will be “All in: Strengthening our Jack and Jill Community (internally and externally) Inside and Out”. We will continue to build and help those around us in our North Shore communities. Our mothers are dedicated to providing programming with purpose and focus on developing the next generation of African American leaders.
