YJA Pathshala Art Contest
Congratulations to the winner of this year's YJA Pathshala Art Contest, Parth Boricha! In his own words, he describes his art:

"The different watercolors outside the Jain emblem are symbolic of the coexistence of the 9 tattvas, the 4 gatis and their interaction with each other, as well as the freedom of different gatis to change their state depending on the karma they accumulate. The void space represents the infinite nature of moksha."
Day in the Life of a YJA Boardie!
Ever wondered what it's like to be on the YJA Board? Join us on Snapchat @theyoungjains starting this Wednesday, June 21st! Board members will give you a glimpse of what they do in their day-to-to day lives, and how YJA fits in with work, school, or whatever else they're up to. As you learn more, we hope it'll get you thinking about what positions you might be interested in applying for someday!
Congrats, grads!
On behalf of YJA, congratulations on graduating high school! To help you hit the ground running in the fall, we're asking all high school seniors what university you'll be attending in this quick form.  We'll let the YJA College Chapter (if it exists) know you'll be there so they can inform you about Paryushan and events on campus. If there isn't a College Chapter, we can work with you to start one. So take a moment and tell us where you'll be going to school this fall!
College Form
YJA Mentorship Programs
Mentors, whether at work or in our personal lives, can be invaluable in our growth. We want to hear from you! Please fill out this quick survey if you would be interested in participating in a mentorship program - as a mentor, a mentee, or both - through the Jain community!
