The Jr. YBA of the Bay




The Oakland Jr. YBA (Young Buddhist Association) is the youth group of the Oakland Buddhist Church and was organized to meet the needs of teens from grades 9 through 12. The Jr. YBA members participate in religious, athletic and social activities within the temple as well as district seminars, annual conferences, and sports tournaments.

Our group supports and takes an interest in all the activities of the church (such as, Mochi-tsuki, Nikkoland Bazaar, Obon Festival, and Hana Matsuri) and we chair Dharma School services throughout the year. We also actively support the community through our participation in various environmental, cultural, and social service projects.

Proceeds from the Udon Sale held in February were donated to the BCO Roof Renovation Fund.  Proceeds from the Spaghetti Lunch held inApril were donated to Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Relief, and the BCO Roof Renovation Fund.  Thank you for supporting these two fundraisers.

We make a difference...and we have FUN!
