Meet up with your YJA friends at college!
Many of you are heading off to college or graduate school - make sure to connect with the College Chapter on your campus! Chapters will be starting off the school year with Paryushan activities, including Jain meal delivery, trips to local Jain centers, and discussions. This is a great way to meet new people on your campus and get plugged in to local activities. If you'd like to be connected to your College Chapter, fill out this form and let us know!

If your campus does not have a chapter, starting one is easy! Just send us an email and we'll get you started with recruitment materials, activities, and more! 
YJA Pathshala - Bhagwan Mahavir 
This month we have a mini-release of YJA Pathshala content on the theme of the life and teachings of Bhagwan Mahavir! Head to the YJA Pathshala page to learn more and to listen to a special 2-part podcast.  
YJA celebrates Paryushan and Das Lakshan!
Keep an eye out tomorrow for a special newsletter with lots of info on Paryushan and Das Lakshan - we'll have a schedule of when different Jain communities and YJA groups are holding events, recipe ideas, and more! If you're going off the grid during this time of reflection and introspection, we'll even have a printable checklist you can use! Best wishes from YJA for a happy and healthy start to the festival. 
Retreat Recaps
We closed out summer with a few more great Summerfest Events! Northeast attendees met up at Boston Common, while South attendees spent the afternoon in Houston bonding over Taco Bell. Mid-Atlantic YJAers met up in Philadelphia for a weekend of activities, including pizza making, Jain discussions and more!
