Greetings from the Austin Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. As President of the Austin Chapter I welcome you to our newly developed website. We are continually striving to strengthen our organization and better serve our members and community alike. Sharing our talents fosters bonds of sisterhood and fellowship as we seek to accomplish our continued mission of excellence.

“The future belongs to those who prepare for it,” so says the motto of the now defunct Republic National Bank. These are words I know both you and I take to heart everyday as mothers, especially as we strive to be role models for our children, supportive partners, and motivated employers and employees all while being proactive members of the premier nationwide organization promoting the African American family: Jack & Jill of America.

A new and energetic National Executive Board was recently installed. Very soon the NEB will update us on the new programming initiatives for the 2016-2017 program year. We have a busy year ahead of us so please know in advance that I appreciate all that you do in the name of Jack & Jill. We continue to do everything in our power to plan great programs for our children and have a little fun along the way.  Your dedication to this organization and to our community is priceless:). 

Mothers, community members...we truly feel that your presence is our gift, thank you for joining us in yet another sensational program year:)!
