The Young Buddhists Association (YBA) is the youth organization for the Denver Buddhist Temple. YBA consists of high school students and is very involved in the temple community.

Some of YBA’s activities include organizing celebrations such as Akimatsuri, a Fall Festival for the Dharma school students, and Keirokai, an appreciation luncheon for seniors, helping with Hanamatsuri and Turkey Bingo, making mochi, hosting breakfasts, volunteering at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival and conducting community service. It is the YBA’s deep pleasure to give back in gratitude to the temple.

Every four years, the YBA embarks on the “Sunshine Trip” to visit temples on the west coast. 

YBA meets every Sunday from September to June following the family service. For more information or questions about YBA, please contact tsdbtyba@gmail.com.
