Greetings and welcome to the Baltimore County (MD) Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated. We are a dedicated and energetic group of loving mothers who willingly give of our talents and resources to expose our children to unique opportunities and experiences.

Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated was founded in 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when twenty mothers came together to create a medium of contact to stimulate growth and development among children.


The Baltimore County (MD) Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated has been serving the Baltimore County area for twenty-eight years. Building upon a shared vision, our 22 Founding Chapter Mothers, recognized the need and value for a Jack and Jill presence, dedicated to nurturing future African-American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty while exposing children to unique and rewarding opportunities related to Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics.

The Baltimore County (MD) Chapter is pleased to be a part of a growing community of African American families in the Mighty Eastern Region who are committed to the vision and mission of creating, nurturing and developing the African American community through our youth.


As President, it is my esteemed honor and pleasure to work with such an amazing group of mothers and fathers who are dedicated to the leadership and empowerment of African American youth.


Thank you,
Karen Heyward-West
President of the Baltimore County (MD) Chapter
