San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin Youth Dept.

The San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin Youth Dept. oversees the various youth organizations within the temple. This includes our Scouting programs (Cubs, Boys, Girls & Venturing Crew), Junior Choir, and Junior YBA (a religious, community service & social organization for our high schoolers). We hope that our youth are able to grow into fine young men and women through their participation in our programs. All proceeds earned from the food booth go toward college scholarships and to our youth organizations.

Our Nikkei Matsuri Connection
We have been volunteering at Nikkei Matsuri for many years. We have enjoyed running the gyoza booth the last few years and prior to that we helped out at the chicken teriyaki booth.

We love everything about Nikkei Matsuri! We love the food, the craft booths, the food, the live performances, the food, the artisan displays, and the food! Most important, Nikkei Matsuri is a wonderful time for the community to come together and provides an opportunity for everyone to have a great time with family and friends.
