JMCAACC is 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a three-fold mission: The Growth and Development of Member Businesses, Youth Entrepreneurial Development and Community and Economic Development in West Tennessee and particularly in Jackson Madison County.
As the resource for African American business owners, partnerships and corporations in Rural West Tennessee, our objective is to help new and existing businesses reach their potential by using our resources to connect them with major corporations, community leaders, and other business owners so that they learn, grow and network for greater economic development and success. The strength of our businesses determines the strength of our communities and families. Our watchword is focus.
In keeping with that mission, we highlight outstanding contemporary and historical business owners through our Annual Jewel Awards Banquet. We train and educate young people, ages 12-18, for success in business (and in life) through our Follow Me Into Business® youth workforce development program that offers soft skills training, shadowing, mentoring and internships or paid summer jobs. As part of the eight-week summer program, we also offer a tour of government offices and provide community service opportunities. We provide support for business owners with workshops and our latest effort is a new small business conference, the West Tennessee Business Showcase and Economic Development Conference.
We also offer a morning of golf in fun with our Follow Me Celebrity Golf Classic held the second
Tuesday in September.
