We the mothers of the Lake Shore Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., have the Power to Make a Difference, in the lives of our children and ultimately in the world through superior programming. Our children’s potential can be maximized through intentional exposure to experiences that challenge them intellectually, instill in them a true sense of service to all mankind and celebrate them as heirs of a rich African heritage.
Lake Shore Chapter enjoys a yearly, well-organized program of activities. We support the goals and objectives of the National Organization by providing civic, recreational, educational, leadership, social, and cultural activities for the children of the organization. In order to ensure quality programming in all or activities , we have implemented the 5 E’s of effective programming: Engaging, Educational, Empowering ,Enriching and Enjoyable .
