About Us

"Eye on the Prize"


Recognizing that families in the Las Vegas area were in need of enhanced social, cultural, and educational programs, Linda Dougan and Nancy Justice began exploring the possibilities of establishing a chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. in Las Vegas. The provisional chapter, “EYE ON THE PRIZE”,  was accepted as an official chapter in July 1992.   Twenty-two mothers created a village for the children of Las Vegas on September 26, 1992 when the Las Vegas Chapter was chartered. Since then, our mission has been to nurture the growth and development of African American children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty.
