Winter 2017, Jahkil became a member of the WE International Youth Council. WE is a movement that exists to make the world a better place. WE Day is also a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities.
Jahkil also wants to help duplicate Detroit’s tiny homes initiative for the homeless in Chicago and was recently honored by the Chicago Tiny House Organization .
Summer 2016, he also began to work with Heartland Alliance putting together bags to help with their initiative. Heartland Alliance is one of the world’s leading anti-poverty organizations, working in communities in the U.S. and abroad to serve those who are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety. During his visit, he learned more about what this organization does to help the homeless and was named an official youth ambassador for the organization.
