Abstract:Participating families join Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated to facilitate the development of same-race peer relationships for their youth. Data suggest that Jack and Jill has a history of elitism that sometimes overshadows its broader purpose and goals. Nevertheless, current and former members relate that by providing a socializing context for African American youth with similar daily and cultural experiences, Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated addresses the developmental dilemmas created by the intersection of the Black suburban experience and adolescents' need for same-race relationships.
