Message from our President
Welcome to the Las Vegas Chapter of Jack and Jill of America Inc. website.
Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated 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.
I am honored to serve as the 19th President of The Las Vegas Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. established in 1992 under the dynamic leadership of our founding mothers, Dr. Linda Dougan and Nancy Justice. Our chapter has been serving and bettering the lives of all children throughout Las Vegas through service projects and fundraising.
We believe that programming is at the heart of what we do and aligned with the aims and objectives of our national organization. We are focused on the well-being and development of our children by providing meaningful and intentional programming that focuses on leadership development, cultural experiences, legislative advocacy, philanthropy, volunteer service, and civic duty.
The Las Vegas Chapter’s Theme for 2023-2024 is “Nurturing Bonds and Embracing our Commitment to Our Children”. When we recognize that just as sisterly relationships empower us as leaders, our roles as mothers provide us with a profound opportunity to shape the next generation of African American Leaders.
On behalf of the Executive Board and all of our dynamic mother members and their families, thank you for your interest in the Las Vegas Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
Long Live Jack and Jill,
Darlene Adams, Las Vegas Chapter President
