Jr. Young Buddhist Association (JYBA)
The JYBA is an affiliated organization of the Sacramento Buddhist Church made up of high school age youth, who get together to learn about the Dharma while having fun together. Whether it is working together or learning together, there are many opportunities to be a leader or to just participate.
Members volunteer to help at the temple and plan service activities for the community. Members also attend church conferences to meet people from other districts and learn more about Buddhism. We regularly attend the annual Central California conference in Fresno in November, and the Coast District conference in March. Conferences are a great way to meet new people and learn new things.
All members are highly encouraged to participate in all service, social, and fundraising activities. We host our annual Spaghetti Dinner in February which is always a lot of fun, and is our major fundraiser for the year.
We also have a year end trip to Disneyland for all of the members who have worked hard the entire year.
