Programming is the heart of Jack and Jill
Chapter Programming is the “heart” of the organization. It is the way that we “create a medium of contact for children that stimulates growth and development.” The Chapters’ 2016-17 programming requires that at least one activity be accomplished centered on the National Program Thrusts under EDUCATION, CULTURAL, CIVIC, SOCIAL/RECREATIONAL, and HEALTH.
Youth Leadership Programs.
One of the hallmarks of Jack and Jill is its emphasis on youth development with our youth leadership programs. Whether it is through skill enhancement, financial literacy or volunteer opportunities, this organization has become a national model for creating effective programs. Jack and Jill has taken ownership in responsibility for developing future leaders who possess the skills to be world leaders.

One of the hallmarks of Jack and Jill is its emphasis on youth development with our youth leadership programs. Jack and Jill has taken ownership in responsibility for developing future leaders who possess the skills to be world leaders through dynamic chapter programming. In keeping with our National Program Thrusts, Inglewood Chapter’s programming platform includes EDUCATIONAL, CULTURAL, CIVIC, SOCIAL/RECREATIONAL, and HEALTHY activities.
As part of Jack and Jill’s Cultural Heritage programming thrust, the Bedtime Stories
series was introduced to support our commitment to Early Childhood Literacy.
The format allows for children to ask the authors questions about the stories and interact on a national level. Jack and Jill currently partners with several other organizations in presenting the stories, and we work closely with local children’s community centers to distribute the titles in an effort to promote literacy in ALL communities.
At the 2016 National Convention in Palm Desert, CA, Jack and Jill unveiled “The Super Chronicles” by the children of Jack and Jill of America. This special edition book is a collection of stories and illustrations from our youth nation-wide.
The Power to Make a Difference
Since Jack and Jill of America, Inc., was founded in 1938, it has evolved
into a strong national organization as a result of strong programming.
