Children's Programming

Our programming is developed with the goal of developing future African American leaders. We strive to create opportunities not only for our children but for all children

Group 1

"Slippery Salmon" is comprised of our 2-year-olds through Kindergarteners. Our youngest group is beginning to build relationships with other kids through hands-on activities and play.

 

The Heart of Jack and Jill

Group 2

Our "Eager Beavers" are comprised of our 1st -3rd graders. They are ready for challenges and independent learning opportunities. Past events have included an introduction to the medical field as part of the J&J Medical Academy; an opportunity to perform talents at the NAACP conference, an exploration of our African American Heritage as they presented a Living Wax museum.

 

Group 3

Our "Proud Puffins" is comprised of our 4th and 5th graders. These young leaders participate in both community service and educational advancement opportunities as well as learning about social activism. This year's activities will include CPR training, park cleanup, a train ride to the Seward Sea Life Center and robotics activities with Legos.

 

Group 4

Our "Frisky Foxes" is comprised of 6th - 8th graders. These young leaders work along side the teen group to develop leadership skills and public speaking skills.

Group 5

Our "Wonderous Wolves" is comprised of 9th - 12th graders. They form their own teen board and plan their own activities for the year under the guidance of their teen advisor. Last year's notable activities included monthly clean-up of a park adopted by our chapter and a trip to Juneau to learn the legislative process and meet with our Senators.

 

Mother's Programming.

Mom's enjoy bonding time together, we've painted silk scarves, painted canvases, participated in hip-hop dance lessons, dinners, escape rooms and so much more.
