Founded in June 1952, the Queens Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was established under the guidance of Emilie Pickens. Mrs. Pickens was also the first Vice President of the national organization. Our chapter is an organization of mothers whose objective is to impart constructive educational, civic, cultural, recreational and social programming to stimulate growth and development in our African-American children. We strive to nurture future leaders through outstanding chapter programming, community service, legislative advocacy and philanthropic giving.
