How do I join JYP?


Twice a year, The JaM Youth Project accepts new members for our Junior and Senior Companies. We host auditions and accept video applications as well.

If you are currently a JYP company member, or have been in the past, you do not need to re-audition.

If you are Drop-In student who has not been a company member before, we do require that you audition.

Please visit our Audition page to learn more.
