The Jain Association of Young Adults (JAYA) is focused on connecting young adults through cultural, religious, and community wide programs to build strong foundation within Jain community of Southern California.



JAYA, an affiliated group of Jain Center of Southern California, is dedicated to connecting Jain Young Adults (ages 25 to 50) who share similar heritage, values, and beliefs. Specifically, the group plans a variety of programs and events throughout the year that foster:

  • Social interaction
  • Temple-related contribution
  • Community service

JAYA aims to develop feelings of togetherness within young Jains living in Southern California by providing opportunities to interact with others, getting involved in religious and cultural activities, strengthening our roots, and to serve for a greater cause. The success of a community is largely dependent on the youth and hence the vision of JAYA is to harness the potential of young Jain adults through exciting programs in order to build a strong foundation within our community
