Why you joined Jack and Jill: I joined Jack and Jill because the organization’s mission to nurture and develop the next generation of African American leaders was closely aligned to my personal goals for my children. Several of my friends were members so I was able to see not only the positive benefits of membership on them but also the exposure of their children to activities that helped shape and develop them as leaders, provided opportunities to engage in community service, and instilled skills and knowledge valuable for life. As a new resident to the city of Indianapolis, I was also interested in expanding my network of friends in a city in which I had no familial ties.
