Jakara Juniors aimed to teach kids the history of Vaisakhi through story telling of Khande di Pahul, teaching the youth the Sikh identity and the importance of seva, selfless service. We aspire that the kids take this knowledge and history of Sikhi along with the values of vand shakna (sharing) to the world outside the Gurdwara. As a first time facilitator, I found myself learning while helping the kids come to their own conclusions on what physical and spiritual attributes a Sikh embodies, how seva can be incorporated in the outside work and how Guru Gobind Singh Ji taught us the act of humbleness. I was amazed to see how involved the kids would get with the various activities, which were successful in occupying them while learning something as well. Overall, Jakara Juniors proved to be a successful experience. - Gurprit Kaur is a first time Jakara Juniors volunteerread more

The first Tuesday of every month we will all come together and turn our ideas into reality. If you're interested in helping with a project like a kids camp or hosting an event like a movie or sports night then come out and we can make it happen together. After the meeting we will can have a picnic, play some sports, or just watch the sunset. Ultimately this is your time with your fellow misl members to decide on what you want to do in the upcoming month. Furthermore at this event we will be having a college workshop as well as facilitator training for those of you who are interested in volunteering at the Kids camp. To volunteer you have to be 16 or older.
