Upcoming Events

Welcome to the Southeast Region!

With a highly driven young Jain population, and a community that’s already kicking into high gear, the Southeast is on the rise and ready to take on a new crew in YJA, with members representing Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The Southeast region, while concentrated in a few Jain sanghs, is unique in that many smaller groups have yet to experience the impact of YJA’s influence on the Jain community. Most of the work down here involves reaching out to Jain Centers and bringing creative event ideas to the table to engage anyone and everyone across the region. The past retreat in the Great Smoky Mountains was a huge success, with over 50 Young Jains showing up to have a great time and discuss the new generation of our religion.

If you’re looking for more info, email Rishab Jain at southeast@yja.org. And you too will say it when you see us out there: Southeast is truly beast.
