We are a membership organization of mothers with children ages 2 to 19, dedicated to nurturing future Leaders by supporting children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty. Membership can be obtained via legacy status or via invitation.
Membership via invitation. We appreciate your desire to join our organization. Membership in the Greater Hartford Chapter requires residency in Northern Connecticut area. Prospective members must be sponsored by a current member of the Hartford chapter. We encourage interested mothers to make contact with Jack and Jill members to learn about specific membership guidelines and procedures. If you are unfamiliar with any current members, please join us at our events where you will have a chance to meet chapter members and interact with our member families. Please be aware that obtaining a sponsor does not guarantee intake into the organization. If you do not live in Northern Connecticut, please visit the ‘contact & regions’ section on our website for further information about the chapter closest to you. If you need additional assistance, please contact our National Office.
Legacy Membership. Legacy status is granted to each child (male or female) who graduates from a Jack and Jill Chapter and whose mother is a member in good standing at the time of the child’s graduation from the chapter. Once the child desires to enter Jack and Jill through their Legacy Status the legacy will be verified through the chapter by completing and submitting a legacy application from your local chapter. The application should be filled out and forwarded to the current chapter president of the chapter in which he/she graduated out from. If at the time the chapter cannot verify the legacy, the chapter files at headquarters will be researched to verify Legacy. If a Legacy certificate was filed for the child it will be in the Chapter Files in Headquarters.
Thank you again for your interest in Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
