Opportunities

Special Events Volunteers help set-up, organize, and execute events throughout the year.

Program Volunteers support the English Dharma Group in various ways. They greet people, encourage visitors to sign in, prepare and rearrange Kwan Yin Hall, set out marketing material, make copies, and take a first time visitor to lunch.

Dharma Volunteers read speaker’s brief biographies in class, assist with a timely start of our talks and coordinate in class sign-up lists and other material.

Children’s Class Teachers lead and assist the English Children’s Dharma Class on Sundays from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Classes are offered for age groups 4-7 and 8-11 years. If you have a passion for teaching children and enjoy meditation, storytelling (Dharma-telling), yoga, music and chanting, this might be your opportunity.

Media Volunteers assist with content writing, editing and design of the website and newsletter as well as printed marketing material.

Prison Ministry Volunteers make a true difference! If this is your call, go to the Prison Ministry page for more information.
