The Jack and Jill of America Foundation is committed to the ongoing positive development of African American youth and the development of future leaders. In addition, the Foundation provides personal, professional and financial support to children in the areas of leadership skills training and development. Further, we are engaged in education, mentoring, health & wellness, early childhood and economic development programs.
