President, Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
A Mother's Note:
Welcome to the Westchester County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated!
On behalf of the warm and wonderful mothers of the Westchester County Chapter, I welcome you to explore this site to learn about Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated and the rich history of the Westchester Chapter.
Founded in 1938, Jack and Jill 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. In 1954, 14 families had the vision to form the Westchester Chapter, establishing the 63rd chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated.
Today, the 100 dedicated mothers of the Westchester Chapter commit their talents and resources to delivering dynamic developmental, social, civic and philanthropic programming that empowers our families and helps our communities thrive. In addition to ensuring the success of our chapter for the last 65 years, Westchester mothers are devoted to the Jack and Jill organization, serving in a variety of Regional and National roles. Most notably, National President Nellie Thornton served two terms from 1990 to 1994.
I am honored to have been chosen to serve as the 34th President of the Westchester Chapter. As the immediate past two-term Treasurer, I witnessed strong collaboration across our chapter to improve the impact of our initiatives. I am now excited to apply my 13 years of membership, chapter service and experience to lead and support our dynamic and intentional Westchester mothers on our mission to continue our legacy of preparing our families and communities for success.
Yours in service,
Phillipa A. Wilson
