WELCOME TO THE OAKLAND JR. YBA!
The Oakland Jr. YBA (Young Buddhist Association) is the youth group of the Buddhist Church of Oakland 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 Food Festival, 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.
We make a difference…and we have FUN!
