Over the past 20 years, YJA’s membership has grown substantially. Today, YJA serves over 10,000 members. Our mission is to be recognized nationally and internationally as an umbrella Jain youth organization for establishing a network for and among youth to share and preserve Jain heritage and religion.
“Leading into the 21 century, the future of Jainism will lie in the hands of the youth. It will be the youth’s mission to preserve Jainism’s rich heritage and insure its growth for future generations.”
-The First YJA Convention: Chicago, IL 1994
