Raise The Bar

The Detroit Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was founded in 1953 by National Founder, Marion Stubbs Thomas, when her family relocated from Philadelphia to Detroit. At that time, Frances Polk became Detroit Chapter's first chapter president. As one of the Mid Western Region's largest chapters, we pride ourselves on keeping the legacy alive in our youth. Our chapter has a long legacy of community involvement, educational children's programming, and cultural activities. We work together with camaraderie as we prepare our children to become future leaders.

2017 Founders' Day Message

Founders’ Day 2017 was one of a kind. Our Past Presidents participation in the Founders’ Day Project enabled us the opportunity to share the rich legacy of their leadership of our beloved organization with our mother members. Through their words, we were able to document our history. This legacy project is most assuredly invaluable to our membership. We will always be grateful for their leadership and commitment to all children.
