Rhonda D. Anderson
Thank you for visiting the online home of the Northern Virginia Chapter (NoVA) of Jack and Jill of America! Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated was founded in 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by Marion Stubbs Thomas and 19 additional mothers who envisioned an organization that would provide social, cultural, and educational opportunities for youth between the ages of 2 and 19. The Mothers of the NoVA chapter are excited to promote our National Executive Board theme “The Power to Make a Difference for all Children – On Mission and On Purpose!”
Today, as the premier African American family organization, we are comprised of 252 chapters
nationwide with more than 40,000 family members. Northern Virginia continues the traditions that began back in 1966 when our chapter was first chartered by our recently deceased Founding Mother, Mrs. Pauline Ellison. The Northern Virginia chapter focuses on creating programs that expose our children to various cultural, educational, social, recreational, leadership, legislative, financial literacy, health, and civic responsibility experiences. We look to provide similar opportunities for the communities we serve.
For that reason and many other reasons, I am proud to serve as the 29 th Chapter President of the Northern Virginia Chapter - the first chapter charted in Northern Virginia. If you would like to learn more about our activities and events, feel free to contact us via this website.
I am glad you stopped by to learn more about what we do. I hope you enjoy your glimpse into our chapter and our esteemed organization.
In Service to our Children,
Rhonda D. Anderson, President
