JAFCE Mission


Welcome to the Jefferson Association for Family & Community Education! We are a 65 year old continuing education and community service organization that is still going strong with 13 clubs and 242 members on the east and west banks of Jefferson Parish(County) in Louisiana.

OUR MISSION is: To strengthen individuals, families and communities through

EDUCATION, LEADERSHIP & ACTION.

We have focused on important issues of the day that impact our families, communities & the world. They include information, programs and projects on:

FAMILY & CHILDREN: From children to the elderly, we have spanned the
concerns for personal growth and development, character building, education, health, nutrition, and safety with projects dedicated to making life better in our world.
LITERACY: Reading empowers adults and children to achieve their dreams and
become contributing members of society.
ENVIRONMENT: Local and global projects will preserve our natural world for
our children and future generations. In the words of Margaret Mead:

"Never doubt that a handful of committed individuals can truly change the world."

Call us at 838-1170 to join.
