We have two exciting sessions lined up for you – a career panel (featuring some of YJA’s finest), and an educational session titled "Jainism 2.0: You and Your Universe." Aside from learning, we’re hosting our first ever "Minute To Win It Challenge", centered around nothing but #yja14! Get ready for a fun competition, some silly challenges, and a ton of fun!

We're already HALF WAY filled, so don't miss out <<First Name>>!
