KC 2020 | Jahkil Jackson

After helping his aunt distribute food to the Chicago homeless, Jahkil Jackson knew that he wanted to do more to make a difference. At eight years old, he created Project I Am, a 501c3 non-profit organization that makes “blessing bags” with essential supplies for the homeless. Voted one of the three most influential people of 2017 by President Barack Obama and the Obama Foundation, Jahkil will share more about his story during a Q&A interview.
