At this year's JAINA Convention, we hosted the first ever YJA Board and Convention Committee Alumni Meetup! This event brought together over 60 alumni from across the country. 25 years of passion, dedication, and #yjalove all in one room! We are so thankful to those that came before us and can't wait to keep YJA going strong for years to come. In addition to the Alumni Meetup, YJA’s Director of Education spoke to pathshala teachers and other JAINA members about YJA Pathshala. Also, YJA Local Representatives had the chance to catch up at the LR Meetup!
