Applications are being accepted for the East Suburban Atlanta Chapter (ESAC) of Jack and Jill of America’s Fourth Annual Beautillion. The chapter covers Rockdale, Newton and Walton counties as well as parts of DeKalb and Gwinnett counties. It was founded in 2008.
The event acknowledges young African-American men’s achievements in academics, sports, the arts, community, church, leadership and overall commitment to the advancement of African Americans. This year’s theme is "Pacesetters: Moving Forward-Giving Back.’’
The Beautillion is designed to prepare high school juniors and seniors for college and the future. During the program, participants are required to attend workshops on topics such as etiquette, fiscal responsibility, men’s health, financial aid, career preparation and public speaking. The young men also attend social and cultural events and participate in a community service project.
Jack and Jill of America Inc. was founded in 1938 and is a non-profit organization of African-American mothers committed to developing future leaders through supporting children’s programming, community service, legislative advocacy and philanthropic giving.
