Youth Exchange Program 2018
JAINA in collaboration with JITO and BJS sponsors and coordinates the Jain Youth Exchange Program [JYEP] 2018. Last year, five-hundred students took the exam and twelve students were finally selected after undergoing two personal interviews. This year over seven hundred-fifty eligible candidates applied from all across India and only 12 were selected. These are few of the best and brightest Jains students across India.

This program brings twelve Jain Exchange students from all across India to the USA and are hosted by Jain families. This is the fourth Year of this program. This program will be conducted for three weeks from 15th June to 10th July 2018 across 5 cities: Boston, New York, Washington DC, San Francisco and Chicago at the Young Jains of America Convention. During their stay they not only visit various monuments and temples but also meet entrepreneurs and industry leaders.

After they arrive in the USA, they undergo a rigorous program of cultural and professional exchange of ideas and learning. They are given ninety minutes of time with business and professional leaders in the field of finance, technology, engineering medicine, law, real estate, hospitality, media, arts, gems and jewelry, government, interfaith, academics etc.

The Jain Youth Exchange Program is ranked as one of the most powerful ways to promote a Jain way of life. It intends to provide hundreds of young students with the opportunity to meet people from other countries and to experience new cultures by planting the seeds for a lifetime of international understanding. The program offers numerous benefits not only to its young participants but also to their hosts, mentors, local Jain Centers as well as to the community at large.

Through Jain Youth Exchange, students learn firsthand about different aspects of life in another country. As their concept of the world expands, they mature and develop a deeper understanding of themselves. Immersion in another country's value system enhances their academic and personal growth. Host Jain Centers, their families and the entire community are enriched by extended friendly contact with someone from a different family/culture.
