We are proud to announce that Young Jains of America is bringing it’s biennial convention back to California after 12 years! The theme of the the 2016 YJA Convention is Agents of Change, and will be held in Los Angeles, CA from July 1- July 4. The convention aims to be the best convention yet. YJA is hosting over 800 youth, speakers and volunteers, all while celebrating its return to the west coast and the organization’s 25th anniversary.

As we journey into the next quarter-century of the organization, our convention committee of 35 dedicated Jain youths, have geared this year’s convention towards the future of our Jain community. The 2016 YJA Convention: Agents of Change, will be focused on providing our attendees with innovative and interactive sessions, networking platforms, and social interaction with Jain youth from across the nation.

The 2014 YJA Convention was made possible through JSMW’s fantastic support. You all helped bring forth the best convention yet, and YJA16 will be even better because of the precedence you set. There are a little under 200 spots left to register! So if you, or your kids, are between the ages of 14-29, register today at convention.yja.org!

The convention is run through the support of our Jain community. If you are interested in volunteering at the convention, visit convention.yja.org/volunteer and fill out the google form listed there. Every donation goes toward the future of Jainism in America. Please visit convention.yja.org/donate, and donate.
