Welcome to the Arundel Bay Area Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. website!
It is truly my honor and pleasure to serve as the president of this amazing chapter. I, along with the Executive Board, sincerely wish to continue the legacy of our past leaders and provide the opportunity for exceptional programming to benefit our children. Because of your dedication and creativity, our programming for this year will be engaging and exciting, while meeting the National Thrusts. Our future leaders will be exposed to the art of public speaking through our newly established Gavel Club, the HBCU experience, the importance of mental health and personal wellness, STEM and water safety. We plan to be heavily engaged with our community by providing empowering events, like our Parent University, which will provide families with critical information for all around student success. We believe that encouraging our children to be concerned citizens, who are empowered to make a difference, will change the world. In this same spirit, we will support the Jack and Jill Foundation as we support all children having the same advantages as our own.
As we embark into this program year, we will focus on our chapter theme, “Guided by our Purpose; Inspired by our Possibility,” which articulates our goal of staying true to the mission of Jack and Jill of America, while seeking unique opportunities which will allow our children to become tomorrow’s leaders. Our chapter is located in Anne Arundel County, which is on the Chesapeake Bay. Annapolis, the state capital, is a historic seaport where Kunta Kinte entered this county over 250 years ago. Arundel Bay is proud of this strong heritage and our connection to water. Like water, we must possess peace and power on our journey to create leaders and make a difference in our community.
