Under the guidance of our Program Director, the South Suburban Chicago Chapter executes an organized yearly schedule of program activities for our children. We support the National thrusts and modules of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. by providing our children with civic, recreational, educational, social, cultural, and leadership activities. Children are grouped by age and grade level in order to effectively meet our chapter goals and objectives. Thoughtful planning by our mothers ensures that our children will have engaging and age-appropriate activities each month.
South Suburban Chicago Chapter’s grade groups are as follows:
Group 1 – Pre-K- Kindergarten
Group 2 – 1st- 2nd grade
Group 3 – 3rd- 4th grade
Group 4 – 5th- 6th grade
Group 5 – 7th- 8th grade
Group 6 – 9th-12th grade
Our teens take pride in contributing ideas for their own monthly programs. Thanks to our teen advisors, we have a forum that enables our teens to participate in leadership development activities throughout the year, including educational, cultural, recreational, and philanthropic programs.

In addition to our group programming and activities, the South Suburban Chicago Chapter also plans for all inclusive family activities that strengthen our growth as a village, as well as our relationship with the community. These events include Jack and Jill Family Day celebrated each September, our annual Holiday Party in December, and National Black Family Day which is celebrated in May.
