YJA Executive Board!

We're excited to hear your ideas for YJA - apply by 11:59 PM EST TONIGHT!

If you're at all on the fence about applying, we encourage you to send in an application and reach out to us to learn more. Being on YJA Board is about:

  • Learning valuable skills,
  • Making friends for life, and
  • Impacting Jain youth across the country and beyond!

No particular experience is needed to apply - we're looking for people ready to dive in and bring their perspective to YJA. Being on Board is a way to give back, but is also an amazing stepping stone for your personal interests and career - the experience will continue to impact you even after your term is done!

Everyone on Board balances YJA with work, school, and other time commitments - we support each other in any way possible and work hard to make the experience meaningful for each Board member.

If you have any questions, concerns, or issues submitting your application, email us at and we'll respond right away!


Hear from a former Board member and current YJA Trustee about how YJA changed her life:

"YJA played a very important role during my college years - a time when I was learning about myself. By serving in YJA leadership, I learned how to operate at a level that I would not have understood but for my service. Even more important, I found lifelong friendships with people across the country - the YJA family is one I will always cherish. If you're even thinking about leadership, do it - run for a position. You won't regret it."
