Spotlight on: Sanghs

For many youth, our early memories of involvement in Jainism center around our sanghs. As we grow older - graduate pathshala, go to college, move for a new job - it becomes important to keep finding ways to maintain ties to our local Jain communities. YJA Regional Coordinators work with sangh leaders across the country to put on volunteering and service events, participate in religious holidays and festivals, and more - check out this video made by YJA members at the Jain Society of Greater Austin’s 2016 Diwali Celebration, asking members of the sangh what it means to them to be Jain.

Connecting our members to their local sanghs is just one way YJA works to strengthen the Jain youth community in the US and beyond. Support our work in growing the next generation of Jain leaders, today.
